Blazing fast & compressed database backups

All database backup servers use NVMe storage and have a high throughput network for quick and reliable backups from different regions.

Execute database backups from multiple regions

We have dedicated database backup servers for faster backups.

Generic database backup toolkit

We like to keep things simple; we use generic CLI tools like mysqldump and msql to create a database backup and then compress them using zip. This way, you can restore them without any special software.
