Today we are releasing version 1.0 of our [_Platform.sh Database Backup and S3 Sync_ GitHub Action](https://github.com/marketplace/actions/platform-sh-database-backup-and-s3-sync) that will allow you to take a database dump from a site hosted on [platform.sh](https://platform.sh/) and sync that database dump to an AWS S3 bucket that you specify. We are utilizing this action with a [scheduled workflow](https://jasonet.co/posts/scheduled-actions/) on a number of sites to automate database backups without running on any of our own infrastructure. We hope you find this tool useful, and let us know if you encounter any issues!
