Compare us to the competition

Old web hosting companies fall short on backups, and it could cost you gravely.

Slow Backups

Many providers take 1 minute to backup one GB of data. So if you have 500 GB of data, it can take over 8 hours. Want to restore that same backup and start using it? Add on another 8 hours. If that kind of downtime is too much for you, the competition doesn't offer a solution.

Ancient technology

The old hosts still use outdated copy-on-write snapshots while copying your files over a network to a slow backup server. This process incurs a significant performance penalty, and if you write too much data during that time, which can be many hours, your backup can fail.

Not enough backups

It's not easy to notice every issue. Some providers restrict you to just a few backups, which means that every backup you have could have the same problem. What good is having 3 daily backups if you didn't notice a bug from a week ago?

"All or nothing" backups of your entire server

What happens when you only break one thing? What about one file, one directory, one database, or one account? Our competitor's backups are of your entire server, so if you want to recover a part of your server, you're stuck.

Required fees unrelated to your usage

Most of our competitors charge at least 20% of your plan's price for backups, regardless of how big your backups actually are. That's not fair pricing, which is why charge for the storage you use instead of tacking on some arbitrary penalty.

Backups that you can't easily test

Our competitors don't share our vision for transparent backups. You have to cross your fingers and hope that your backup will work when you need it. While we give you easy access to view and use your backup, the competitors often require you to revert your entire server.

Take a deep dive

You can restore any database as long as it writes to the disk. This includes MySQL, Redis, MongoDB, or anything with persistent storage.

To restore a copy of a database, boot a virtual machine from an instant backup. The copy of your server will have its network directly attached to your live server, allowing you to connect to it using protocols like SSH. Once you have connected to the server, you can run any command you would run on your live server, such as "mysqldump". Because the copy of your server is accessible, you can use tools like FTP or rsync to transfer the copy of your database.

On our backup recovery page, we provide detailed steps showing you how to connect to your server's backup.

Restoring a directory or file on Slicie is extremely easy to do. You can download a copy of a directory or view a file in your browser. Our file browser works on mobile devices and tablets, which means you can access backups on the go.

The other simple approach to restoring a directory is to attach an instant backup to your live server. Our backup page will provide you with the command to mount the filesystem in your backup to your live server. From there, you can use commands like "cp" and "rsync" to restore your backups.

There is no direct fee for a backup, but like everything else on Slicie, you simply pay for what you use. The only resource consumed by a backup is storage, so your backups are billed at the same price as storing any other data.

When you take a backup, it doesn't actually use any storage at all. Whatever you were paying for storage before the backup is the same you'll pay for storage after the backup. Once you start modifying your data, those differences will cost you money. The backup doesn't directly cost anything, but the fact that you have a backup causes differences to accumulate in the future, and so your backup indirectly costs you those differences.

If you were to take two backups and make no changes between the two, the first backup would cost you nothing because it would use no storage.

You can keep as many backups as you like for as long as you like. Keep in mind that you pay for the storage associated with the backup. So while you can store them for as long as you like, you'll be paying for the cost to do so.

Backups are always safe to delete, assuming as you don't need them.

Data that was exclusively held in that backup will become freed up, and you'll stop paying for that specific data. You won't be able to access that backup again, as it is permanently deleted.

Unlike our competitors, we do not make copies of your files. Our backups are exact copies of your entire 256 TiB drive, and they can be used for forensic analysis.

You can download a copy of your files within a backup, but you cannot download a copy of the 256 TiB drive.

Your data is stored in the same datacenter as your server. We do intend to offer off-site backups in the future.
