Read the Article Before Install

Don’t install Remora Backup directly! Our add-on uses a helper app to give you complete control of your data flow so installation is a bit different than a typical add-on. Read the DevCenter article on how to install Remora correctly.

An Offsite Copy of Your Data

Your data gets backed up daily to our secure hosting partner off of AWS, giving you peace of mind in the event of a large-scale AWS outage.

Enterprise-Ready Backup

Remora Backup was designed with Heroku Private Spaces and Heroku Shield Spaces in mind. Our use of a backup Helper App allows for secure automated daily backups of your Postgres data - even in a Shield Space.

Your Private Data Kept Private

We utilize a Helper App within your Heroku Private or Shield Space (or within your account on the Common Runtime) that you control. This Helper App transmits your backup data directly to our secure hosting partner so your data never flows through our add-on.

End-to-End Encryption

Every step of transmission of your data - from your Remora Helper App reading the data from your Postgres DB to its transmission to our secure data center - is encrypted. Your data is encrypted with GPG before sending, so it never sits in the clear. You have a unique random encryption key assigned to you, and this key is stored in Amazon KMS - the gold standard for encrypted key storage and management.

Backup Retention

Your backup is performed daily at a time you specify. Full database copies of your backup are retained for 7 days, 4 weeks and 12 months. Custom retention schedules are available as well.

Recovery When You Need It

We allow you to access copies of your backup archives at any time using SFTP or SCP, and in an emergency we can even arrange for physical delivery if needed.

The Compliance You Expect

Our secure hosting partner is HIPAA, PCI and SSAE16/SAS70 compliant, and our add-on is designed so your data flows directly from your Space in Heroku to them, never passing through a third-party unsecured. Additional info can be provided upon request.
