So, please add your needed feature using the poll option or add your opinion so that the finishing of WordPress Cloud Backup Plugin can be done nicely.
WordPress Cloud Backup Plugin : Current Scenario
The major problem right now in 2012 is that, WordPress is the most used CMS and the developers has practically no knowledge about Cloud Computing environments. We wrote that there is no practical CDN plugin for WordPress which is stand alone and supports both origin, push and pull.
There is no solid WordPress Cloud Backup Plugin that can work with all advanced Cloud Computing platform with load balancers – be it managed Rackspace Cloud Server Setup or Amazon’s.
With GPL License inside, shamelessly copying the codes from GitHub, there are 2-3 “premium” plugins for backup as well. Copying because simply only for Rackspace Cloud Files, there is only one PHP code based on their API, dev guides, which works. Even some deleted the comments in php files.
In contrast to WordPress Cloud Backup Plugin prototypes, we actually have very advanced free Cache Plugins – WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache both are quite advanced and fully free.
WordPress Cloud Backup Plugin is just a name not the End Product’s name
WordPress does not allow to use the word “WordPress” for Plugin’s nomenclature. Their view is clear – promote yourself, not WordPress. We named it as WordPress Cloud Backup Plugin project, obviously the final name will be different. Moreover, the phrase WordPress Cloud Backup Plugin is catchy to get input !
