Redis Persistence and Backups in Production

Our main web site (http://cloudno.de) runs as an app on the Cloudnode platform among all other Node.js apps. It is an express powered content management system backed by Redis running in the RDB persistence model. Redis stores everything and it is important to have database backups.

As a Cloudnode user ourselves, we don't need to take care of Redis backups, its done for us. Every database running on the Cloudnode platform is backed up on a daily basis.

With the latest update you can now download your backups and store them in another safe place.

We also added a backup button to download a full repository backup.
