I can set up a backup plan and have a high level of confidence that it is going to work. I worked with other backup products for different IT services and never felt [until now] comfortable that the backup plan was going to work as expected.

How does your third-party GitLab backup solution work? Protect git repositories data?

Our third-party GitLab backup solution ensures comprehensive protection for your GitLab data, including repository backups with all corresponding metadata like issues, pull requests, members, and many more. The backup process involves creating a backup in a secure non-readable non-executable file format, which is then encrypted and stored in your final backup destination. Our solution supports object storage options like AWS, Azure Blob, Google Cloud, and any S3-type storage to safely store your backup files. Forget about using a backup utility script. With our backup solution, you can automate the entire process, eliminating the need for manual intervention.

How do I install and configure your third-party GitLab backup solution?

To install and configure our third-party GitLab backup solution:

  1. First, create a new account on the signup page. You can register with an email address or choose one of the available SSO methods instead. For GitLab users, GitLab SSO is a popular option.
  2. If you are Signing up with GitLab your organization/service will be connected with GitProtect right away. If your preferred method is email & password, then in the next step you will be able to connect GitLab service manually. You can authorize GitProtect using OAuth App or Personal Access Token.
  3. Set up the GitLab backup plan to create an encrypted backup in a non-readable, non-executable format, ensuring that your GitLab data is securely stored. GitProtect fully supports an automatic backup process of your source code, git repositories data, and corresponding metadata.
  4. Schedule regular automatic backups and incremental backups to keep your data up-to-date and protected. All your future backups will run according to the backup schedule. However, if such a need arises, you are able to trigger a backup at any time. You can also choose if this backup on demand should be a full copy, incremental copy, or differential copy. GitProtect presents a holistic way to protect your critical existing data.
  5. Automatically sync any new repository so your backup copies stay consistent and cover all your GitLab data. You can specify a time interval between sync or event trigger them manually. By following these steps, you can efficiently manage your GitLab backups and ensure the safety of your repository data.
What are the benefits of using your third-party GitLab backup solution over a DIY method?

Our third-party GitLab backup solution offers several advantages over DIY methods when it comes to protecting existing GitLab data:

  1. Automated backups: Streamline the backup process with automated GitLab backups, reducing the risk of human error. You can run full backup, incremental backup, and differential backup.
  2. Secure storage: Store your backup file in secure locations (public cloud or on-prem), such as Google Cloud Storage etc. ensuring the protection of your data.
  3. Comprehensive coverage: Backup all essential GitLab data, including git repositories and the vastest metadata coverage on the market.
  4. Efficient restore: Use our intuitive backup restore procedures to quickly recover your data from backup storage.
  5. Customize retention: set a retention according to your organization's requirements. We support every approach - up to 30 days, 6 months, 1 year, or limitless. Fully automated, hence there is no space for human error. By leveraging our solution, you can avoid complexities and potential pitfalls of DIY backup methods.
How do I restore data using your third-party GitLab backup solution?

To restore data using our third-party GitLab backup solution:

  1. Access your most recent GitLab backup copy from your backup store - cloud or local storage. In some DIY backup tools there is a dedicated backup folder on your machine, however in this case as GitProtect is a multi-storage solution you can send your data to multiple backup destinations and easily replicate backed-up data between them. There is a dedicated policy just for this purpose. As you are reading this text you are probably tired of configurations using sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure.
  2. Restore the backed up GitLab repositories and metadata to your original GitLab instance, a new one, or another git hosting provider.
  3. Verify the integrity of the restored data to ensure all repository data are intact.
  4. By following these steps, you can efficiently restore your GitLab data and maintain the continuity of your operations. And if GitLab experiences downtime, you can restore data to GitHub or Bitbucket.
Does your solution allow storing encrypted information?

GitProtect offers a multi-layered approach to data protection and data encryption:

  1. You can use a personal encryption key (secured by AES 256 algorithm) to secure your backup data.
  2. GitLab's data is encrypted in-flight - before it leaves your machine, - during the transmission process, and finally at rest, when your data gets to your backup destination.
  3. We use the WORM-compliant storage technology that prevents GitLab data from being modified or erased and makes it ransomware-proof.
