How does it work?

Dumper supports two ways to perform backup.

Using Rails...

Install a gem.

If you're using Ruby on Rails, it's really easy — add gem 'dumper' to your Gemfile, and you're set.

Once a day, we send a trigger to your server, your server dumps a backup and uploads it straight to Amazon S3. We check if everything is good, and if not, we send an email alert to you.

Not using Rails...

Let us fetch your data.

No installation needed.

It just works if you're using one of the cloud databases such as Amazon RDS as they allow remote access by default.

If you have your own custom servers, we'll guide you through firewall settings.

Once a day, we remotely connect to your database and take a backup using rock-solid official utilities like mysqldump, pg_dump, mongodump, or redis-cli.
