Backupify is a Class Act

I got another email from Backupify, the cloud-based backup company. We have written before about them here. Usually, these emails just confirm that the backups of my Gmail, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter et al. accounts have completed successfully, but this one was different. They were telling me that they were in the process of migrating from an old system to a new one, and I had until the end of the month to make sure that my accounts were protected and authorized on the new system.


The email contained several important pieces of information: First the drop-dead date that the switch is going to happen. Second, a link to login to my account and what to do. Third, it mentioned the full list of cloud services that they now handle, which is impressive:

Blogger, Facebook Profiles, Facebook Fan Pages, Flickr, Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Contacts, Google Docs, Google Sites, LinkedIn, Picasa, Twitter and Zoho

Finally, and most importantly, it gave me an opportunity to opt out and export my data from my account if I was truly paranoid and wanted an “extra” backup.

I wish more enterprise software vendors followed their lead. It is nice to see, even with a smaller vendor such as Backupify, such high standards.
