iThemes, a WordPress company that’s celebrating eight years in business this month, is announcing a new add-on called Stash Live which will be part of BackupBuddy 7.0. Similar to VaultPress, Stash Live is a service that will enable users to perform real-time backups.
Both the database and files will be streamed to the service where you can create a snapshot. The snapshot includes, a site’s database, files, plugins, and themes. Users will be able to download the .ZIP file or keep it on Stash Live and use it as an off-site backup storage location.
In addition to performing real-time backups, Stash Live offloads the processing power used to create them making it friendly to shared webhosting environments. BackupBuddy 7.0 is currently in the beta testing phase that iThemes plans to release soon. Customers with an active subscription will receive access to the service for free.
