We we testing to connect our Linode cloud server with Ottomatik. The connection process took 3 to 4 minutes due to a little error on our ssh settings. After our server was connected, the fun part begin. It is very easy to set up a new backup task to our MySQL databases. We do love the automatic scheduling backup.
The web management console is very easy to use. We can easily add new backup tasks, monitor backup, add new server and perform restore database via this web management console.
So far, we don’t have any problem during testing period. This online backup service is specially designed for cloud server and not for local computer. If you are looking for backup solution for your local computer, this is not for you.
