Updates

  • Today we are introducing yearly plans. This has been requested a lot, especially by our corporate users.

    Yearly plans can be a great way to simplify bookkeeping if, for example, you’re required to submit expense reports every time you use your credit card. With our new yearly plans you have to do that only once a year. 

    Having a yearly plan you can still cancel or change your plan at any time. Let’s say you are downshifting from a higher plan, BackHub will automatically calculate the difference in price and make a refund on the next bill.

  • We are happy to see more and more users joining our service to make backups of all their GitHub repositories. Especially in the last couple of weeks our user base has almost doubled. That happened faster than expected, which is nice. But that also means we need to extend our server resources and therefore have to schedule a short maintenance period quite spontaneously.

    BackHub won’t be available tomorrow, November 19th between 3:00 and 5:00 PM CET (what time is that for me?). Sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Today we introduce the often requested feature “daily recurring backups”. Once activated, BackHub automatically backs up your repository incl. associated meta data on a daily basis.

    For existing backups recurrence is deactivated. If you need an always up to date backup of your repository please login and activate “recurring daily”.

    Once you delete your repository on GitHub but keep the backup as an archive on BackHub, recurrence is automatically being deactivated.

  • Since end of April we run a new version with a much more reliable service and new features. You should check it out at https://backhub.co

    This is a friendly reminder to move all your backups from beta.backhub.co over to the live version in the next 7 days.

    BackHub beta will be SHUT DOWN as of JUNE 15th 2014.

    Thanks a lot for testing out BackHub beta.

  • Over the last couple of weeks we have been busy working on a complete refactor of our code base. The result is a much more reliable and faster app with improved repository recovery and some of the new features our beta users suggested.

    From today the new version is live as public beta.

    Thanks for everyone participating in the BackHub private beta. We received a lot of useful feedback and many suggestions for improvement.
