Ottomatik – Super Simple Backups (sponsor)


December 19th, 2016


Ottomatik is a service to automatically backup your files and databases on schedule and off-site. You can also bring your own S3 account for unlimited backup storage and fully control your data.

Some of the features of Ottomatik include:

MySQL Backup & Restore

The MySQL Backup & Restore features allow you to create a routine full backup of your MySQL database on a schedule of your choice with a myriad of options governing how to conduct the backup. If you have a very active website the zero-downtime features may be of interest. If you are running replication or binlog backups you may want to flush logs with each backup. However you need to backup your database Ottomatik’s mysqldump backups can handle it.

File and Directory Backups

A core component of backup operations is often simply backing up files and directories, however sometimes this simple operation can become quite complex with rules around certain files you want to backup and others you don’t. Ottomatik’s File & Directory backup features provide some simple capabilities for paths that should included and excluded but they can be used in powerful ways. Whether you specify full path names or use complex pattern matching functions this feature should fit your needs with a simple and usable interface.

Ottomatik has already processed over a million backups. Try it today and save yourself the time and hassle of worrying about backups.
