Frequently Asked Questions

How to set up long-term retention and f.ex. Bitbucket repository archive?

Forget about 30 days retention offered by other git backup vendors. We give you full control over retention so you can keep your copies as long as you want and restore them from any point in time. Bitbucket repository archive? With this feature, it’s easy to safely store old, unused copies for any legal compliance or future use.

You can define the retention rules in three ways:

  • keeping all versions infinitely,
  • by indicating the number of copies you want to keep,
  • by indicating the time of each copy to be kept in the storage (separately for the full, differential, and incremental backup)

What are repository restore and Bitbucket migration possibilities?

Unlike in other vendors, you don’t have to install any additional repository restore app - all features are available in the central management panel. Choose copy from ant point-in-time you want to restore (repositories or repositories and metadata) and decide whether it should be restored to:

  • a new Bitbucket repository,
  • your local machine,
  • crossover - to another hosting platform. It enables fast and easy Bitbucket migration - you can restore your repository to GitHub or GitLab repo and conversely.

How to set a backup plan and schedule for Bitbucket repositories and metadata?

A backup plan lets you manage your Bitbucket repositories and metadata protection easily and effectively. Choose a predefined backup plan (i.e. backup of all repositories) or customize your own. Define:

  • data to protect (i.e. all data, only chosen GitHub repositories, and metadata),
  • storage - whether you use on-premise or SaaS you can store your copies locally or in the cloud (compatible with S3),
  • schedule - set the frequency of automatic backup execution in a monthly, weekly, daily, or hourly manner so it will perform accordingly,
  • advanced features - encryption, retention, versioning, and rotation schemes (GFS or FIFO), compression level, and much more…

What are GitProtect for Bitbucket security features?

Security is our top priority. We love to deliver our customers peace of mind so they can focus on what they do the best - building world-changing software. Thus, we provide you with some advanced features ensuring you with Bitbucket security:

  • Backup encryption - your data is encrypted with AES algorithm - considered impossible to break.
  • In-flight encryption - the encryption process starts before your data leaves your machine and it’s protected either during a backup performance and in the repository.
  • Zero-knowledge encryption - your device does not have any information about the encryption key - it receives it only when performing a backup. We don’t know what’s inside and nor will any intruder.
  • Secure Password Manager - store and manage all your passwords (internal and external) in one, secure place. Create strong passwords you don’t need to memorize - save them and pick from the list once needed.
  • No single point of failure - in short: you can lose access or all configuration of the management panel but as long as you have your encryption key you can restore the data.
  • Detailed audit logs - All information, errors, success notifications, warnings… with all the details so you can easily identify any cause-and-effect relation.
  • Backup verification - anytime you can test if your backup works. We keep you informed about backup execution with detailed in-panel statistics and email reports.
