Hello hunters! Thanks @mrsimonbennett for the hunt ๐Ÿ˜บ I'm @geekuillaume, the creator of DBacked. While I was working on different projects, I tried to find the best way to backup my databases. Most of the available solutions are based on a small script in a cron job but it was lacking a big feature: being alerted if the backup was failing. I also wanted full E2E encryption and Docker support. That's why I created DBacked. DBacked is a open-source command-line tool paired with an optional SaaS product. The tool is installed on your server and it creates, encrypt and send your database backup. It can be configured to store everything on your own AWS S3 Bucket or, with the Pro plan, directly on DBacked servers. Security is my priority and everything has been done to be sure your data is always available and cannot leak. The open-source tool documentation is available here: https://dbacked.github.io/agent/ I'm eager to read your comments ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

@mrsimonbennett @geekuillaume Looks dope. One query : How are you reaching out to corporates ?

I needed a painless way to manage the backups on my SaaS products and I just want it to work, DBacked just deals with it.

Pros:

Really Simple to get up and running

Cons:

As of yet, none.

@aaronoleary Thanks a lot ! Don't hesitate to tell me what you think ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

It just works! And the fact that it's open source is awesome. The way it works is pretty amazing too: the database dump, encryption, compression and upload is all done in memoryโ€ฆ

Pros:

Open source and extremely optimized

Cons:

Can't think of anything
