How do you backup your VPS?

Are there providers that do daily backup of your VPS just like in shared/reseller hosting?

  • DigitalOcean, Linode, Vultr all do backups for a reasonable price. However, no matter your provider, you should also store a backup with a different provider in different location for the best safety. Providers at LET/LEB sometimes go broke/get bored/run away - so best to prepare for a disaster

  • NexusBytes provides a NAT backup vps in different location, so you can use a script to backup things.

    I don't backup the VPS.

    All my scripts and content are in git repository. Secrets and deployment commands are in my Nextcloud.
    If a server disappears, I simply follow the instructions and re-deploy affected services on the same or different server.

    Recently I'm developing a service that involves user registration. Maybe I need to setup rsync for its states, or store them on Nextcloud.

    Either way, I'm losing billions per hour in such incidents.

    I don't have Nexus Bytes. If I have, I wouldn't store backup on the same provider's infrastructure.
    The reason is, if there's a billing dispute or if the provider deadpools, I would lose both the main server and the backup.
    Cross-backup to a different provider's infrastructure is safer.
