There are various methods of backing up data. Before listing them it is important to remember that, on Aruba Cloud Computing, each disk is activated on redundant Storage
synchronously, the need to backup should not then arise from the fear of losing data due to any technical failures. Storage however, does not allow files accidentally deleted by the customer to be recovered. If you want to backup we suggest the following procedures:
- install a second/third/fourth hard disk in the Cloud Server, then use it as a backup unit
- create a new Cloud Storage Server with an Openfiler, FreeNAS, template, or any Windows or Linux Cloud Server and use it as a backup Server within its own private network
- create and configure a new Cloud Server Storage on another Datacenter with an Openfiler, FreeNAS template, or any Windows Cloud Server and use it as a backup Server (external and then to the private network)
- export the hard disk to the FTP area available for your AWI-12345 account, to perform the download (once downloaded it is advisable to proceed with its deletion from the FTP area)
- purchase a Dedicated Server on Aruba (https://serverdedicati.aruba.it) to be able to use it as a backup Server
If you want to create a recovery point before making any changes or updates Aruba offers the customer the Snapshot
feature (remember that in this case, the backup is kept for 2 days).
We remind you that the Snapshot feature is provided exclusively for creating one restore point, we therefore advise you not to make improper use of data backups.
