Where are backups stored?

Where are backups stored?


Rewind Backups for GitHub runs on Amazon Web Services. The data is stored in the region EU Frankfurt (eu-central-1) per default. If you choose Enterprise Plans, you can change the backup storage location to US East - N. Virginia (us-east-1). If us-east-1 is compromised, our DR plan has us switching to us-west-2 (Oregon).


If you require your data to be stored in the US, please contact us at sales@rewind.com. Enterprise plans offer the option to choose the US as the storage location of your backups.


Because GitHub runs their own data center your backups are stored in a different, independent location. In case one system fails, the other is still available.
