Backups Save the Day
Backups are more than just a good idea - they’re a business requirement. Data loss and unplanned downtime affect businesses of all sizes every day — adding up to over $1.7 trillion dollars annually. The only way to ensure your business is protected is with a comprehensive backup solution you can rely on in the case of disaster. We offer several backup strategies with multiple layers of protection, painless recovery options, and flexible scheduling.
Cloud Server Backups
Each Linux Cloud Server has individual backup options that are managed from within the Cloud Server Dashboard. Cloud Server backup images are transferred to a secure off-server storage pool over a private internal backup network. Cloud Servers make the important task of regular data backup easy by eliminating the hassle of backup management and providing two simple options:
- Choose the number of daily backups to retain and pay per the gigabyte of storage used by the backup images. Cloud Servers will handle the pruning of old backup images for you.
- Select a backup quota to specify the maximum amount of backup data that you would like to retain for the Cloud Server. Cloud Servers will retain all of your daily backups until it has reached your quota. When the quota is reached, Cloud Servers will delete the oldest daily backup to make room for new backups.
Note: Backups older than 90 days are not retained, regardless of quota.
Cloud Server Backup images are a snapshot of the entire file system volume. Cloud Server Backups are done instantaneously at a specific point-in-time. This protects against files becoming out of sync during the backup process. Cloud Server Backup images can be accessed from the Restoration tab of the Cloud Server Dashboard to quickly re-image your server to an earlier date.
Cloud Server backups can also be generated manually at any time by creating a Server Image. Creating a server image takes a point-in-time snapshot of your server and saves it to the Cloud Server system for later reuse. The server image can be used as a restore point for server re-imaging or it can be used to deploy a new identical server.
