Perform regular backups to boost your data resilience
To better ensure business continuity for your applications, you need to make regular copies of your data, so that you can restore it if you need to. With Volume Backup, you can limit the impact of unwanted data loss on your applications. Having Volume Backup copies of your Block Storage volumes allows you the ability to restore your backed up data.
Volume Backup uses triple data replication. The copied data is hosted in another Object Storage service, better-ensuring resilience for your data.
Backups are one of the first criteria to take into account when automating an infrastructure. OVHcloud has simplified the implementation of backup scenarios via its Workflow Management solution, allowing you to access your backups through the OVHcloud Control Panel.
Easy to use
You can back up your Block Storage volumes in just a few clicks. OVHcloud performs and secures your backups until you need to use them, so you don’t have to worry about the hassle of managing and maintaining them.
