Snapshot and backup are methods to save a previous state of our VM before making a change to it.
The differences are, in snapshots we save a state of our VMs manually without a schedule applied. In other hand, backups feature let us do a scheduled save-state of our VMs and let a system determines the retentions and the backup schedule.
Restore → restore the VM from the current snapshots
Create VM → Create a new VM from the existing snapshots
Delete → Delete the existing snapshots
Enable Backup → this function must be enabled to activate the backup VM capability
Backup every → this feature specifies the backup frequency
Keep most recent → this feature told how many backup will be keep before the retention policy exceeded
Backup list → The list of the backups have been performed
Restore → Restore the backup to an existing VM
Delete → Delete the related backup
That marks the end of this guide on to make a snapshot and configure VM backup in CloudRaya. I hope this guide was helpful. Find another helpful article in our Knowledge Base page!
