While building and running BackHub the last three years, we got lots of user feedback and have learned a lot about what a backup solution for GitHub should provide.
We know that large organizations may have concerns about handing over their most valuable data to a small startup in a foreign country for the purpose of creating and maintaining backups.
A distributed version of BackHub that is being run on site behind the firewall could address this concern yet have drawbacks in terms of convenience and maintainability.
We decided to go with a solution that lets you use your own, separate storage account with an independent third party company (Amazon S3). With this solution you have all the convenience of a service run in the cloud while keeping full control of your data. Another big advantage is that your data can be accessed anytime, even if both GitHub AND BackHub were to be unavailable.
If you are interested in using BackHub Enterprise for your organization, please send us a message email@example.com.
Update: In early 2019 we will announce a new external storage solution, an option that gives you total access to your data.
