If you’re a director of technology at your company, you already know the importance of backups. Perhaps it’s one of the key things you explain to the employees at your business? We wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the case. However, being a technology director, it is evident that you have a lot of things that you need to take care of: things that range from taking care of your employees’ work to managing the tech stack you use to run the business. However, what’s also incredibly important is backing up your data: chances are that being a technology director you simply don’t have enough time to think about backups. What do you do then? Thankfully, there is a solution.

Backup Ninja?

Backup Ninja is good solution doesn’t matter if you are a developer, a database administrator, a data scientist, or, in this case, a technology director: it’s a good decision to use a tool that automates your backup processes regardless because:

  • It saves you time - can you imagine covering every backup aspect manually? Imagine backing up your data, scheduling your backups, keeping an eye on them every month, week, or every 24 hours..
  • It saves you money - a tool like Backup Ninja is very cheap and in many cases, it will be at least somewhat cheaper than the other backup solutions on the market.
  • It helps your employees - your employees can simply be directed to Backup Ninja if they want to take backups of a certain database without bothering you as much. Wait, doesn’t that save your time too? It does! See how everything works together?

Backup Ninja is a service that can help you as a technology director because it works regardless of the database technology that is being used: no matter if you use MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, MongoDB, Percona, or TimescaleDB, it works very well across all of those. Isn’t that brilliant? Oh, did we also mention it’s secure?


This is how the UI of Backup Ninja looks like once you first log into the service. As you can see, backups can filtered by a server, you can also choose a time schedule you want to filter the backups through (24 hours, 7 days, and 30 days are all an option), you can also define your own timeline if you desire, you would also, of course, need to keep an eye on the backup stats (what’s their success ratio? How many completed? How many of them failed? etc.)

Backup Ninja will also let you know the status of your upcoming backups saving you time as a technology director as well. Chances are you don’t even have the time to look around upcoming backups, do you?

Backup schedules will not only be displayed - they can also be edited:


When you are editing the backup schedule, you will notice that backups can be taken minutely, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or even yearly if you so desire - isn’t that amazing? You can also define a backup directory and edit basic schedule details as shown below:


With Backup Ninja, your backups will be safe because Backup Ninja uses a AES256 OFB encryption mode when encrypting your backups.

Backup Ninja can be a really useful tool for everyone - developers, of course, DBAs, and technology directors alike. It’s useful for technology directors because the majority of them don’t have time, but would gladly spend a couple of bucks a month for a SaaS backup tool.
