With cloudHQ, you can set up a real-time backup of all your Google Drive, Google Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Contacts accounts to any cloud storage (Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier, Dropbox, etc.).

Real-time data backup is the backup of files by automatically making a backup copy of every change made to your Google Drive files.

This means that cloudHQ is essentially capturing every version of your Google Drive files and saving them to your dedicated cloud storage. It allows the Google Apps administrator to restore data (or create a snapshot of your system) to any point in time. You can think about cloudHQ sync as a very powerful version of Apple Time Machine.

To set up real-time backup of your files, you’ll need to create backup sync pairs that will back up each of your users’ Google Drive account to a dedicated folder. For example, something like this:

Google Drive (bob@acme.com)   -> Amazon S3/Backup_bucket/bob@acme.com/Google Drive (bob@acme.com)
Google Drive (alice@acme.com) -> Amazon S3/Backup_bucket/alice@acme.com/Google Drive (alice@acme.com)
Google Gmail (bob@acme.com) -> Amazon S3/Backup_bucket/bob@acme.com/Google Gmail (bob@acme.com)
