Hello! What's your background, and what are you working on?
Good Morning! I'm Simon Bennett, a 25-year-old software engineer from the UK. I've always enjoyed building projects for myself on the side and teaching developers. When I am not consulting, I am working on my SaaS SnapShooter - a DigitalOcean backup server
SnapShooter provides a secure and easier way for DigitalOcean users to back up their droplets and volumes. DigitalOcean is very limited in only offering weekly backups and retention of the last four. This was not good enough for me at work so I built a system that enables hourly backups. SnapShooter also offers volume backups which is not offered by DigitalOcean.
Since launching in February to date, SnapShooter has taken 150,000 backups, managing 2,000 droplets and volumes and has 44 paying customers at a MRR of $834.
What motivated you to get started with SnapShooter?
