Server Backup

Hi, I just noticed that AppHarbor is being shut down, I dont visit twitter or even the community blog, I just didn't knew about it, I feel sorry for the ending of an era. I would like to ask you for help on getting backups of the databases that I used to have with you. They're very small, I hope you can send me them by e-mail.

I wish you a bright future, thanks for all these years of service!

    The database servers are back online for another day or so -- please take immediate action to migrate/download your data! This is your last chance to do so as AppHarbor was actually shut down earlier this week.

    On that note, many customers have had good luck using the Data Migration Assistant tool for migrating larger databases to SQL Azure (but it will likely work with an AWS RDS for SQL Server instance as target as well). For small databases you might want to just use SSMS to script the database.
