 I have been using Akeeba Backup religiously for years. It is the first extension I install an every site I build. For the first time, your product saved me (and my client) when it was needed most. My largest client (a school district) suffered a complete loss of their site when their VPS suffered an unrecoverable file system error. This issue actually affected many VPS's within a node of a major, and well-known, U.S. host. Fortunately, we were using automated cron job backups, saving them in a cloud storage account.

As anyone in IT knows, the quality of a backup is never really known unless it is needed. Once our host set up our account on a new VPS, I pushed up the last full site backup and crossed my fingers. Needless to say, within minutes the entire site was back up and running perfectly!

I have used Akeeba extensively for migrating/moving/duplicating sites (as well as routine backups) and it has always been a stellar performer. This time, however, was the TRUE test in my opinion. And your product worked flawlessly. I cannot thank Nicholas and your ENTIRE team enough. You certainly now have a customer for life!!! Thank you for your hard work and dedication on this amazing product.

Hello Rick,

Thank so very much for the very warm words and the encouragement! The entire staff here at Akeeba appreciates it. We're glad our software saved the day.

If I may ask, would it be possible for us to use the content of your post in our marketing material? We want to collect some testimonials for our new site.

You absolutely may use whatever you wish!! I will also say that I have been working in Joomla since mid-2006. I had no formal training, and simply wanted to build my church's first website. Joomla seemed like the perfect fit! I started installing extension after extension. I very quickly (and painfully) learned that there was tremendous disparity in the programming talents of the people providing those extensions!! It took me a few years, but I was able to discern a relatively few extensions that I could REALLY trust, from talented developers that supported and patched their product. These developers have earned my complete trust, and you and your team are one of them. Akeeba may not get the front-end "flash and show" that some extensions do, but it is the most valuable extension I put on every website.
