Updates to Salesforce’s Backup and Restore Services

By

Editor’s note: This post was updated on February 7, 2022, with the latest information and resources. 

As a result of tremendous customer feedback early last year, we reinstated our Data Recovery Service. At that time, we heard that you relied on this functionality as your backup and restore strategy, as there was no other Salesforce native capability available.

We are very pleased to announce that in fall 2021, we launched Salesforce Backup and Restore, built natively on the Salesforce Platform. We’ve co-designed these services with customers, and we intend to deliver the performance, speed, and scale you’ve come to expect from the platform while continuing to provide additional ways to innovate and extend these capabilities through our vibrant ecosystem. Backup and Restore not only replaces Data Recovery Service but also offers an experience beyond that original service—providing a simple, elegant point-and-click interface to create and manage backups and restore as it best suits your business.

And, as always, Salesforce AppExchange is home to a rich partner ecosystem that provides robust backup and restore solutions for customers today. A list of AppExchange partners who offer these solutions can be found here.

As both native and partner solutions are available to our entire customer base, we have (re)retired our Data Recovery Service.
