You might back up the information on your hard drive every week or month, but when was the last time you backed up the data you store online? From Flickr to Facebook, Twitter to Google Docs, more and more people are storing more and more data online without any backup in place should something go awry. Backupify is an application that aims to fix that, by giving users a cost-effective way to backup the data they store the web.
After selecting a plan that fits your needs, get started right away by inputting your login information for each of the online services you’d like to have backed up with the Backupify system. The process is as simple as entering your various usernames and passwords, and determining how frequently you’d like the information to be saved. Within 24 to 48 hours, your initial data backup will be complete and you can start accessing your data from the Backupify “archives” should the need arise. For those who prefer, Backupify can also send out daily or weekly emails showing which services were backed up and when.
Retrieving your data from Backupify is a simple process. And because Backupify stores its archives in Amazon.com’s data center—which has been determined to be among the safest and most secure data clouds available—the information will still be accessible even in the unlikely event that Backupify itself goes down. For anyone who stores important information online, Backupify is definitely a security system worth checking out.
