Reading Time: 4 minutes

What is Amazon S3?

Amazon S3 stands for Simple Storage Service and is the cloud platform provided by Amazon for easily storing and downloading files. WHM can sync with this service to store your backups on a totally separate network.

As almost every computer user knows, anytime you add or remove crucial data from your computer you should take a backup, just in case something unexpected occurs which may destroy this information. This could be as simple as an accidental deletion or as serious as a hard drive failure. Your server is no different. There should always be some form of backup in place for these “just in case” type situations.

It’s even more crucial when your livelihood or income is dependent on this data and your site. It is advised to not only keep “on server backups” but also to retain backups somewhere off the server in case of hardware failure or a catastrophic event. We offer multiple, cost-efficient solutions for retaining off server backups including Cloud Backups and Cloud Block Storage. Today we’ll explain how to set up your server to push your WHM backups to Amazon’s S3 service as an additional destination for your external backup plan.
