Today we are releasing version 1.0 of our Platform.sh Database Backup and S3 Sync GitHub Action that will allow you to take a database dump from a site hosted on platform.sh and sync that database dump to an AWS S3 bucket that you specify. We are utilizing this action with a scheduled workflow 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!
