Hello all,

I have several VPS servers running C Panel and I am using OVH Hosting as the auto backup system for each. I am looking for a cheaper way to do daily backups rather than spending almost $20 per server each month.

If anyone can suggest a safe, reliable and more affordable way to do daily backups, that would be great.

You can use the built-in cPanel backup function which can either back the server up to a remote storage or to the server itself. If you look for a commercial solution then JetBackup is something you can look at.

BackBlaze could also be used and it is relatively cheap however you have to get the B2 version as the Personal one doesn't work with Linux. You could read more about JetBackup at their homepage which I linked above :)

It sounds like your issue is more the location of the backups than the actual backup software, is that correct? If so, you could have all your backups sent to one additional location over FTP directly through the cPanel backup tools. If that isn't enough for your situation, the other tools mentioned also work great, but do have an additional cost.
