Cloud Backup Release 1.3.0

Faster Backups and Restores

Posted by Fermin Silva on August 23, 2017

We’ve been working hard the last weeks in order to improve the agent performance.


  • We are now using Snappy for compression, resulting in much faster backup and restore times. Resulting files are even smaller than before. We tried for example a mysqldump backup and it took 1 minute and resulted in a 1.7GB file. Previously the same backup used to take 3 minutes and was 5GB! You can see more in our FAQ entry “How do backups and restores perform?”.

  • Server side scalability improvements thanks to Redis.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue when doing a mysqldump/mysqlpump with just one Database (as opposed to all databases) that in some cases couldn’t be restored automatically

New Features

  • Google sign-in : when you receive your account invitation for the first time, you can choose to login with google instead of creating an user/password combination
