This app allows you to use AWS (Amazon Web Services) S3 as backup system for desktop environments. Like Dropbox or Google Drive app you can backup your important data on AWS S3. This desktop app allows you to configure 3 different types of backup job (One time, recurring, live) to backup your data in an S3 bucket.
- One time: the backup job will be executed only one time as programmed.
- Recurring: the backup job will be executed periodically as programmed.
- Live: any time a file associated with the backup job changes it will be transferred to the S3 bucket.
This is a cross platform app, built with Electron, so you can use it on Windows, Mac and Linux.
This app use the AWS CLI "sync" command, this mean that you must install the AWS CLI in order to use this app.
You can find the AWS CLI installer here: Download AWS CLI
After installation go to settings page and configure the AWS credentials.
In order to use the app you must set an "AWS access key ID", an "AWS secret access key" and an "AWS Region" that you can create through the IAM service in the AWS console. The IAM user needs a programmatic access account with a correct read/write S3 policy attached (e.g AmazonS3FullAccess) and CloudWatch Metrics (e.g CloudWatchReadOnlyAccess). You can use any IAM S3 policy that grant access to the buckets that you want to use with the app. Here an example policy: IAM S3 example policy
