Since the release of our blockbuster plugin BackupBuddy in March, one of the biggest feature requests for our all-in-one backup, restore and migration solution has been Amazon S3.
Today, Dustin Bolton, our lead developer for PluginBuddy, released BackupBuddy v. 1.2.0 that now includes support for backing up to Amazon S3 as well as FTPs.
Amazon S3 is a remote cloud-based storage system. With BackupBuddy’s new support this allows you to back up your entire blog’s files, settings, content, and database to off-site storage resulting in added security and reliability of your files.
BackupBuddy cutomers: Although we think these new features are stable, they are currently in beta since we just rolled them out. Please test a backup using Amazon S3 and FTPs and report any issues you have in the BackupBuddy forum.
