Why should I backup my data?

To prevent loss of data

There are many reasons for keeping an extra offsite backup of your projects on

The number one cause of data loss is directly from users.

Here are a few scenarios that can lead to loss of data in a GitLab project:

  • GitLab accidentally loses your data
  • A project has been deleted accidentally from GitLab.
  • A projects content has been wiped.
  • The history of a repository was changed with git-reset or git-rebase and therefore has led to loss of data with a forced push.
  • Rogue employee destroys your data.
  • Your account get's hijacked (happened to the Canonical GitHub account).
  • Your account is deleted

There are many other scenarios that could potentially lead to loss of data. We therefore strongly recommend backing up all your data.

With BackHub you can restore your current backup directly back to GitLab or rollback to a previous state of your repository and metadata from any of the backup snapshots up to 30 days back in time.

For compliance

Many of our customers also need backups for compliance. If you are preparing for a SOC2 or ISO27K audit, for example, you will need a backup of your cloud data.
