#198: Backing up 170 Petabytes of customer data, with Simon Bennett of SnapShooter

Simon runs SnapShooter, a service that performs scheduled server backups. We discuss:

  • why backups is NOT a dull business
  • how the pandemic pushed him to make the jump to full-time
  • charging his first customer just $2/month – and quickly learning to charge much more
  • a “I did a rm -rf on the wrong server” story
