WordPress Backup Solutions: VaultPress

In this final screencast of the WordPress disaster planning series, I demonstrate another backup solution — VaultPress, a new service that allows self-hosted WordPress sites to benefit from the same level of data security that WordPress.com sites enjoy.

One advantage VaultPress over BackupBuddy is that backups are performed in real-time. Every time any content is added to your site a new snapshot of your database is taken nearly instantaneously. That makes VaultPress a superior backup solution for eCommerce, membership, and active community sites. Additionally, your backups are securely stored on the VaultPress site, eliminating the need to maintain a separate cloud storage account like Amazon S3 or Dropbox.

If your site is critically important to your business, VaultPress is well worth the monthly fee. In this screencast, I take you on a tour of the VaultPress press website and demonstrate all of the service’s key features. I also provide some guidance on how to determine which backup solution is right for you.
