What is AutoDB Backup?

AutoDB Backup is a service we provide that automatically backs up the entire content of a MySQL database to our remote servers every 24 hours. In many websites especially ones that have ecommerce features the majority of the information contained within the website is stored in the database. If the database fails months or even years of work and customer information can be lost. A catastrophe like this can trigger the failure of the entire business. Database failure is more common than most people realise. Hard drives are the least reliable components in a server as they have the most moving parts. If you are not comfortable having years of your hard work stored in one device with a typical life expectancy of five years or less then AutoDB Backup is the right service for you.
