Once you enable automatic backups of your server, it will be backed up (snapshotted) automatically every second or third day (depending on account level) plus one weekly backup and sent to a separate SAN. Some account levels allow for more than one backup option. If you have an account that provides additional backup slots or have ordered add-on backup slots or have unused backup slots, the system will also automatically do weekly and monthly backups.
The default backup options are as follows:
The manual backup is the backup that is not overwritten each day so you could use the manual backup as a "gold" backup image for any block resource level
Please note, these backups are offered at no additional charge, are not guaranteed (this is a self managed service - contact us for enhanced, managed backup services), are provided on a "best effort" basis and may be disabled or discontinued for maintenance or performance reasons at any time. You are responsible for enabling, managing and monitoring any backup status of its success or failure. Additionally, these backups are not be relied upon for single file restoration purposes as it is meant to provide server templating, cloning or complete server restoration. You are highly encouraged to maintain backups of your sensitive data to an additional data repositories. Alternatively, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional managed and unmanaged backup solutions which include FTP space, simple storage space and/or R1Soft automated backups which can be used for individual file restoration purposes and full bare metal restores.
