I came across this interesting utility to sync backup files to Amazon S3. With this utility in less than ten minutes I learned how easy it is to upload a local file to remote folder in S3 bucket.
I already had a script in place to backup the site's files and database dump. To make this script complete I needed a script/ utility to sync backup files. And s3cmd came there as a savior. I would like to share in this blog post how easy it was to install, configure and get started to make the potential use of the same.
At KnackForge, besides Development Services we assist Clients to setup server and take the responsibility of ensuring that their sites and servers are running smooth without any (or least) securely compromise.
Gone are the days to run an over-configured hardware in anticipation that our websites would receive a huge traffic (and so are the days to run a lesser-configured hardware that will let our sites down at crucial times). Servers on the cloud with autoscaling allows us to expand / downgrade our server capability on demand.
