Any provider supports (free or not) snapshot of vps?

Hi guys,

I am currently using DigitalOcean who provides free snapshot for their droplets. I built up around 10 backups manfully for my vps now, don't know if there is an amount limitation to do so.

I also tried Vultr before and they did provide the similar feature.

Do you guys know any other providers support this feature (free or not) ?

Thanks for sharing

    Yeah, impactvps (awmusic above) provide free snapshots.

    There are other providers like wable, Aruba etc, which provide paid snapshots.

    Checked your website, didn't find quotes about kvm ones. I assume VDR 4- 20 are ovz, aren't they?

    Yes they are openvz. I haven't gotten around to putting up the new KVM page yet. Though I have offered it via private sales for the last few months.

    We support live snapshotting on Luna Node, with KVM instances. The first 20 GB of space is free; past that, it is $0.003/GB/mo billed hourly. Snapshots can be taken from the control panel or via our API; the instance does not need to be powered down during snapshotting.

    iwStack also supports snapshots, and they use Xen and KVM.

  • Delimiters Cloud Resource Pool and Cloud Storage VPS both support on-demand snapshoting as well as scheduled snapshots.

    There is no additional charge for snapshots, the space is taken from your data storage pool.

  • digitalocean and vultr for now. aruba has 50GB ftp for snapshots if I'm not mistaken. how would you backup to aruba ftp, i have no idea.

    As a side note, providers that don't allow to download snapshots for local backup but only charge for hosting them act unfairly IMO (our bandwidth quota can be used for those downloads if that's an issue).

    Who does that? That really defeats the point.

    It's 50 GB for uploading images, but you can't use it for snapshots, if I'm not wrong

  • @GM2015 said:

    and Vutlr, they also don't allow snapshot download.

    digitalocean and vultr for now. aruba has 50GB ftp for snapshots if I'm not mistaken. how would you backup to aruba ftp, i have no idea.

    this feature is not only used for backup but also can be useful for testing purpose, to restore everything in minutes is just great. :)

    Well, you just let me realize that I should be able to download my backup :P.

    Not at the moment, but if you ticket us we will give you a download link. We have been making a large amount of behind the scenes changes to prep for additional features, such as downloading the snapshots.

    Its critical! I personally use snapshot to generate a point in time backup and then download it for safe keeping.

    Also really useful if you want to deploy the same image across multiple providers.

    @MarkTurner @GM2015

    I find something here

    On Aruba Cloud Computing you can create a single Snapshot at a time and it will be kept for 2 days: after this period the Snapshot will be deleted. Keeping the SnapShot is free and does not incur any additional costs.

  • Yeah, it's great if you have dedicated servers and some virtualization like proxmox/virtualbox/etc in place.

    Yes, on Luna Node you can download snapshots from the Images sidebar tab (just select an image and then click download button). Recently it has also been made available in the API. There's a pretty cool project at https://github.com/rickparrish/lndbackup that might be useful (automatic remote backup).

  • GM2015 said: Yeah, it's great if you have dedicated servers and some virtualization like proxmox/virtualbox/etc in place.

    For my personal VMs, I run daily automated snapshots and then just download them automatically and push them to Hubic ;)

    Hi, just checked some of your offers, sounds great especially double resource on annul plan. Which location do you provide? any test IP? thanks

  • colingpt said: Which location do you provide? any test IP? thanks

    Atlanta but LA, NY are hot in its heels.

  • Hey, we provide One-Click Snapshots.

    Pricing is £0.002 per hour, regardless of the disk size and any other factors.

    Snapshots are stored on a dedicated snapshot store.

    Users can trigger them on their own. It does take your VPS down as we (by choice) don't use ploop for the time being. We've had a few users lose their VM's to ploop bugging out (it growing incorrectly, it restarting incorrectly, etc).

    According to http://wiki.buyvm.net/doku.php/backups it is free, with a limit of 3 snapshots per VM.

  • IWStack supports them and you can also download if you have chosen the ISO to be extractable when you registered it.
    Our Win server SPLA templates cannot be downloaded, though, due to licensing possible issues.
    No snapshot is free, however, iwzip, which uses the same infrastructure, allows for a free one.

    @perennate : Ceph Volumes coming to France? ETA?

    Those $12 credits are probably never going to be touched just like my Vultr account balance.
