Please review our answers to some of the most common questions about our Virtual Server Backup Programme.

What VPS backup system does Simply Cloud use?
At Simply Cloud, we use a fully automated image based backup facility which copies and safely stores an entire image of your virtual server for you to use should you so need. You can request that this be set up at the point of installation or enable it from your Simply Cloud control panel.
With our VPS backup system you are able to take three image backups at any time - a daily, a weekly and a snapshot - and you can easily schedule and re-schedule these backups yourself from within your Simply Cloud control panel.
What happens when I need to restore my virtual server?
You can restore your virtual server backups at any time from within your Simply Cloud control panel. With Simply Cloud the restore process is simple and convenient - the relevant backup will be named (by you) and so you just need to select the required backup and select 'restore'. The backed-up image will replace whatever data is held on your server completely, so you don’t need to worry about losing your data.
How much does it cost?*
When you choose to backup your virtual server with Simply Cloud, there's no set up fee and you will be charged a fixed amount based on the VPS's disk size:
SVS1000 = £7.00 per month
SVS2000 = £14.00 per month
SVS3000 = £20.00 per month
SVS4000 = £25.00 per month
