No matter where you host your website, something could happen that would immediately destroy all of your years of work on your blog. Your server could crash, your hosting service could accidentally delete it, or hackers could add malicious code that would take hours to clean up. Just like you (should) backup your personal computer regularly, your website needs backed up too so your data will never get lost.
There are many backup services for WordPress blogs today, ranging from plugins that email you a copy of your WordPress database to ones that archive everything on your site to Amazon S3. The new VaultPress service takes backup to the next level, making sure that everything from your site is redundantly backed up to multiple cloud services within seconds of it being saved on your site. Keep reading to see if VaultPress is the ideal backup solution for your WordPress powered site.

A major USP of the cloud and SaaS apps is data security. Anyone with logical thinking would understand the benefits of having their data stored in a world class data center managed by experts and their data duplicated across multiple centres across the globe for redundancy.
There’s still one part of most cloud setups that makes it weak, the human connection. Human errors can override the checks and balances in place and threaten the safety of the data stored. We’ve witnessed quiet a few instances of this. Backupify helps you set up an extra layer of backup ensuring peace of mind.
When you’re working on a large development project, it can be a painful task trying to organize each aspect of the development work and the more traditional methods of handling this, like jotting down notes as to what you need to do on the back of a coffee receipt, can be quite unreliable.

What we should be building is a high-powered internet connected personal database of everything that’s of interest to you and not just text and links. More so, everything should have a custom wrapper of its own, that gets dynamically updated without any input from you.
