/tmpdirectory, and files that are not preserved across reboots.
- Easy-to-configure retention policies.

Easy Setup, Batteries Included
Opsmate saves you significant time and IT cost over managing your own backup solution. It's easy to set up, and ships with reasonable defaults so you don't have to configure anything to get up and running. There's no need to worry about cron jobs, exclude lists, or obscure command line options to properly preserve metadata. Opsmate lets you focus on your business—not on backup administration.
Of course, if you have special requirements, advanced knobs are available for your tuning.
Opsmate is designed with reliability in mind. Your backups are replicated across multiple datacenters on different coasts of the United States and can survive the entire loss of up to two facilities.
Opsmate automatically monitors your backups and alerts you if there's a problem or if a scheduled backup doesn't take place. With Opsmate, you never have to worry about problems going undetected.
Opsmate gives you visibility into your backups, so you can be sure that the right files are being backed up successfully. Opsmate is a system you can trust, not a black box that takes your data.
