How does it work?

Dumper supports two ways to perform backup.

Using Rails...

Arch rails cropped

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...

Arch fetch cropped

Let us fetch your data.

No installation needed.

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

That means, you need to open up a TCP port for us. We give you detailed instructions on how to configure your firewall.
