On-the-spot GitLab restore and Disaster Recovery

GitLab restore and disaster recovery

Point-in-time GitLab restore

plus minus

Need to restore your GitLab data from a very specific point in time? Just chose a copy and recover it to the same GitLab account, a new one, a local machine, or another git hosting service. Thanks to unlimited retention you can keep your copies for as long as you or your legal department need or even archive unused projects.

GitLab outage? Cross-over recovery & DR

plus minus

With GitProtect you are resistant to every downtime scenario. GitLab outage? Human error? Security flaw? Use cross-over recovery to instantly restore all or chosen repositories and metadata to another version control hosting platform - i.e. Bitbucket or GitHub or a local machine. Instantly restore processes and ensure uninterrupted development workflow.

Lightning-fast granular restore

plus minus

Don’t restore the entire GitLab environment every time you need to recover only individual metadata. Easily browse your copies, search for git repository data to restore, and perform fast, granular recovery of repositories and only chosen metadata.

"Security first" for your compliance

AES & zero-knowledge encryption

plus minus

Your data are encrypted with your own key and AES agent-side encryption both in-flight during transfer and at rest in the repository so no one will be able to read it. Our service doesn’t have any information about the encryption key - it receives it only when performing a backup. Moreover, our data processing technology makes it ransomware-proof.

Up-to-date audit logs & Slack notifications

plus minus

Have access to advanced audit logs and visual statistics to track all actions performed in the system, diagnose errors and react immediately. Customize email and Slack notifications to keep an eye on data protection without interrupting your current tasks.

SOC2 and GDPR Compliance

plus minus

We are SOC2 (on finish) and GDPR compliant. With our secure, ransomware-proof, and disaster-resistant backup and recovery software for GitLab, we can help you meet your legal compliance, industry requirements, and shared responsibility model duties.

GitLab backups with central management


Web-based central management console

plus minus

Backup, restore, and manage your GitLab data protection directly from your browser, anytime and anywhere. Powerful, data-driven dashboards, visual statistics, monitoring center, and real-time actions combine ease of use, precise management, and time-saving.

Multi-level management - admins & privileges

plus minus

Add new admin accounts, and set privileges to share responsibilities among your team. Grant or limit permissions to each account to have more control over access, and data security. With advanced audit logs easily monitor each action made by each admin and keep an eye on everything.

Backup entire DevOps ecosystem in one place

plus minus

Just one account to protect an unlimited number of GitLab, GitHub, Bitbucket repositories, and Jira users? Sounds great! Our multi-tenancy technology makes it easy for IT admins to manage data protection of Jira and different version control hosting platforms and easily migrate between them with cross-over recovery.

GitLab outages and security flaws


Error: human, software, or hardware

Diebold Nixdorf

The last Jira outage gave us a lot to think about - mostly how would we deal with a such scenario ourselves. And the answer didn’t fill us with much optimism. We needed to make fast changes and include Atlassian tools in our backup policy. There was one problem – most backup vendors don’t cover DevOps tools. So the initial issue has grown even bigger. Fortunately, we heard about GitProtect, tested Bitbucket backup, deployed it and now we are waiting for the upcoming launch of backup for Jira. For us, GitProtect is a real game-changer.

Mark Wolland Senior IT Project Manager

We live from coding. So we are aware of intellectual property value. We need to make sure that our customer’s data and the source code of their GitHub projects are protected and accessible from any point in time. GitProtects provide us with nearly unlimited retention and GitHub archive possibilities. And features like encryption and password manager ensure us with our code security.

Marcin Pastuszek CEO at PQ studio

To achieve SOC 2 certification, our organization needed to implement a fully manageable GitHub backup solution. There was no question about compromising any of our strict security policies. GitProtect with its strong focus on security, user encryption, and policy-based advanced backup plans set up was the obvious choice.

How can I set up long-term retention and GitLab archive?

Most git backup vendors offer retention limited to 30 days. Forget about it. GitProtect gives you full control over retention so you can keep your copies as long as you want and recover repositories from any point in time. If you have unused repositories, use this feature as your GitLab archive.

As the user you can define the retention rules in three ways:

  • by indicating the number of copies you want to keep,
  • by indicating the time of each copy to be kept in the storage. Those parameters are set separately for the full, differential, and incremental backup,
  • keeping all versions infinitely.
plus minus

What are GitLab restore and GitLab migration possibilities?

All data restore possibilities are available directly in your management panel. Unlike in other vendors, you don’t have to install any additional GitLab restore app. Simply choose data you want to restore (repositories or repositories and metadata) and decide whether it should be restored to:

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

And with the Granular Recovery feature, you gain fast, and point-in-time recovery of all GitLab repositories or repositories and only selected types of metadata.

plus minus

How to set a backup plan and schedule to protect GitLab Projects, repos, and metadata?

A backup plan lets you manage your GitLab projects’ protection easily and effectively. Setting it up lasts up to 5 minutes and then you just watch the magic happens. You can choose a predefined backup plan (i.e. backup of all repositories) or customize your own.

In such a backup plan you indicate:

  • data to protect (i.e. all data, only chosen GitLab repositories, and metadata),
  • storage - whether you use on-premise or SaaS you can store your copies locally (local disk resources - NAS, SAN, or SMB network shares) or in the cloud (Xopero Cloud, AWS, and all S3 compatible clouds - i.e. Azure, Alibaba Cloud, Google Cloud Storage, Wasabi),
  • schedule - it gives you the possibility to set the frequency of backup execution in monthly, weekly, daily, and hourly manners. You can limit backup performance time to non-working hours so it does not impact your work and network bandwidth,
  • advanced features - retention, versioning, and rotation schemes (GFS or FIFO), encryption level, compression level, and much more...

What are GitProtect for GitLab security features?

Security is our top priority. We need to make sure we deliver our customers peace of mind so they can focus on what they do the best - building world-changing software. GitProtect brings you confidence when it comes to your GitLab security and backup, including:

  • Backup encryption - your data is always encrypted with AES algorithm - considered impossible to break and used by the US government to encrypt confidential data.
  • In-flight encryption - the encryption process starts before your data even leaves your physical machine so it’s protected either during a backup performance and at rest 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.
