Automattic has just launched VaultPress (currently in beta), a new premium backup service for self-hosted WordPress blogs. I think it’s an excellent idea and I know many people will benefit from this service. TechCrunch has more on the VaultPress launch.
The vision of VaultPress is to ensure that blogs and sites under its care are always completely secure, regardless of what happens. Today, this means every bit of content will be safe, from plugins and themes to the smallest comment or post revision, with WordPress-aware, real-time, multi-cloud backups.
