Protect & restore Cloud Servers files

Lost files and system failures can paralyze a project. That's why having a contingency plan is crucial.

Cloud Backup safeguards your business by helping to protect the important files your website or application needs. Quickly get back to normal operations by rapidly restoring files after a system failure or file loss.

Never commit to a long-term contract

Save money

Block-level compression and deduplication reduce storage costs by up to 20x compared to uncompressed backups. After your first backup, additional backups are incremental to lower your total costs.

Save time

Easily create, schedule, and manage file-level backups through our Control Panel or API. Because it's integrated with Cloud Servers on our high-capacity network, protecting files and restoring backups takes just minutes.

Secure your data

Enterprise-grade encryption (AES 256-bit key) helps ensure data is secured with a passphrase known only to you. After creating the key, data is encrypted before it leaves the server, and remains encrypted while stored.

Everything we do is managed cloud. With managed cloud, our experts can run your cloud ops for you, or be there whenever you need help—you choose the level of service you want. When you choose a Managed Operations service level, we'll preinstall Cloud Backup on your servers and configure weekly backups of standard system configuration files (file storage fees apply). We can also restore, monitor, and troubleshoot backup jobs—so your environment is always operating at peak performance. See everything you get with managed cloud.

Easy to use

Schedule, manage, and restore your files using our intuitive Cloud Control Panel or API. Quickly restore backups to the originating Cloud Server (or any Cloud Server running the backup agent), and choose specific files and folders to back up.

Fast and efficient

Cloud Backup includes file compression and block-level deduplication to reduce backup times, file size, and storage costs. After the initial backup, block-level deduplication saves time and storage space by only backing up changed files.


File-level backups are transferred over our high-capacity network and written to three storage disks—all on separate nodes or locations that offer dual power supplies.

Simple setup

With a Managed Operations service level, we preinstall Cloud Backup on all of your Cloud Servers to back up standard system configuration files. With the Managed Infrastructure Level, installation is self-service.

Pricing is based on your service level

Your bill will vary based on the number of days in the month ($0.33/server per day). Bandwidth charges apply only if Cloud Files data resides in a different data center from your Cloud Server, but we make every effort to store both in the same data center.
