Other Private and Commercial Cloud Backup Servers

You can also organize backup to a cloud of any type, from a local cloud server raised on a small home NAS to an enterprise-level private service to some enterprise cloud backup solution that not yet have its own plug-in in Handy Backup. All you need is to have a WebDAV interface or bridge for that cloud, or the S3 protocol for data transfer between a cloud and other devices.

  • The WebDAV multi-cloud plug-in governs all operations when you back up to cloud using the WebDAV protocol, as the S3 Cloud plug-in supports S3 connections, such as Wasabi backup, IBM Cloud Backup etc.

Note: When using any cloud plug-in as a backup source on the Step 2 of a task wizard, you can locate any cloud plug-in in the "Cloud" section on the left panel. When making backup to cloud, you can select each available cloud server plug-in from the open list on the Step 3.
