Why is WPTC a standalone product when InfiniteWP has backup addons?

InfiniteWP was built with the idea of being a multiple website management solution. It wasn’t built as an out and out backup solution. The technology and the architecture that InfiniteWP is built on, restricts us from making radical changes such as implementing incremental backups or putting a file versioning system in place. We made a few mistakes with the backup solution in InfiniteWP and they weren’t the best backup addons when we launched. However, we have crossed that barrier with a slew of learnings and made backups with InfiniteWP really reliable. The restrictions in architecture adding to the heavy backup module consisting of multi-call, zipping and compressing mechanism made us skeptical about introducing incremental backups with InfiniteWP. We wanted to build an efficient updates system and an effective backup solution that consumes less server bandwidth while offering flexibility without compromising on the cost or reliability of a solid backup solution. We have been building WP Time Capsule for over 4 years now and every time we think of fitting the solution inside InfiniteWP it just doesn’t get along, like oil and water. They are completely different from each other and trying to fit in WPTC inside of InfiniteWP would just make things worse for InfiniteWP. We gave it a lot of thought and from every perspective we wanted WPTC to be a solution that would cater to a much wider WordPress audience rather than being restricted within the multiple WordPress management community. InfiniteWP will continue to remain the premier multiple management solution while WP Time Capsule will become your go-to backup solution focussing on backups, auto-updates and securing your WordPress sites. That way it’s a WIN-WIN for everyone. WPTC will be integrated into InfiniteWP through an addon where you will be able to manage your backups that you have taken via WPTC and initiate new backups from the IWP Panel without having to login to the WPTC dashboard. You can send them as reports to your clients too. Read more about how WP Time Capsule different from InfiniteWP.
