Way back in March I announced the launch of VaultPress, the backup service from WordPress developers Auttomatic. I received a ‘golden ticket’ from them a few days to a sign up as a beta member so it must be very close to launch.
Their are 3 pricing plans: Basic ($15 a month), Premium ($40 a month) and Enterprise (Not available yet). The more expensive packages come with extras such as security monitoring and audit trails.
The service is apparently built on the same platform which hosts WordPress.com (which has around 14 million blogs). It has a host of features to ensure that your website is never lost such as retrieval of lost files from the dashboard, live ticker message updates, spam protection, expert support and much more.
It will be interesting to see what large websites start using VaultPress to backup their data. I recommend looking into it if you are looking for a fast and efficient backup service.
