BackupBuddy was the first plugin to make it easy to backup, restore data, and move WordPress sites, and yesterday iThemes announced its biggest update yet — Stash Live. Stash Live, slated for release in the near future, makes real-time backups of your website.
According to the announcement,
“The new Stash Live feature makes a real-time backup of your site, streaming your database and files over to our new Live online service where you can make a Snapshot (a BackupBuddy zip file) of your full site, your database, your plugins, and your themes.”
From there, you can download the Snapshots and keep them safely on your desktop.
iThemes started working on Stash Live when a problem was identified with slowdowns with hosting companies, especially when it comes to CPU usage and Disk I/O. BackupBuddy 7.0 allows you to make critical backups of all your online work so you never lose anything.
There isn’t a rollout date yet, but 7.0 is currently being tested.
