Overview

World Wide Access Cloud Backup (beta)

This is a beta program for the World Wide Access Cloud Backup extension. This extension will allow you to create backups of your entire store and database and send it to an offsite cloud storage service (Amazon S3). You can also allow automated backups which will send the backups to the cloud everyday for piece of mind in the event of a data disaster.

Please note, the beta program and software is likely to change as we develop new features. Please only participate if you are happy with that.

Lastly, cost. The extension is provided free, and the data storage will be free for the first GB of data and 50 cents per GB-month after that.

The service is billed and backed by Amazon's S3 service, so you can cancel your subscription at any time - best to download your most recent backup before cancelling your subscription though.

You can read more about the extension in my post introducing the Cloud Backup beta program and explaining how it differs from the built in Magento backup tool.

CloudBackup lives at GitHub.

To use the extension:

1) Install from Magento Connect

2) Sign up for the beta by activating the software through Amazon (a link is provided in the extension configuration)

3) Create your first backup in Tools->Offsite backups

4) Optionally use automated backups (requires Magento cron to be configured)

Easy eh?!

So please give it a try and let us know what you think. During the beta, you can contact me directly for support and installation help.

This extension just saved me big-time. In short, my now former web host was not able to come through on their claim of automatic backups. However, I did have a test site on which I had installed Cloud Backup (installed using the same account as the now inaccessible production site). So I simply downloaded a backup made just before the production site went offline, and I have my database plus my customised skin, email templates, etc. Thanks Ashley. November 7, 2012

Great extension and great developer. Developer has made a few high quality extensions that he gives away for free. Always there if you need any support. I like this extensions but one thing is missing is some sort of status window in the website version. Developer said he may implement this. Doesn't really matter if you are running it as a cron job.
