With BackupSheep, you can schedule automatic snapshots and snapshot lifecycle policy for Vultr servers without writing code.

To connect your DigitalOcean account you need to use your Vultr API Token.

Important Notes

  • The automated snapshots created by BackupSheep stay within your Vultr account, and they are the same as if you make a manual snapshot.

  • Vultr doesn't allow the export of snapshots.

  • BackupSheep doesn't charge you anything for storage used by snapshots because they are stored with your Vultr account. Vultr will charge you a storage fee for snapshots.

  • Vultr allows only 11 snapshots per server, so configure your schedule accordingly.

Please follow the steps below to configure Vultr snapshot automation. If you have any questions then please reach out to live chat or email support@backupsheep.com
