Cloud box “remote backup” is coming! Automatic remote full backup and incremental backup

Time:2021-6-25

The primary task of cloud box is to back up the document data on the office computers, mobile phones, tablets and other devices of enterprise employees. For enterprises, documents are very valuable data assets, and multi-level backup and restore strategies must be deployed to prevent accidents.
The new “remote backup” function of cloud box sends the encrypted data in the enterprise cloud box server to the remote server or cloud storage space according to the scheduled backup plan. When encountering unexpected natural and man-made disasters, it can restore the backup data to restore production and minimize the loss caused by data loss.

How to create a new backup plan?

Operation steps: “backup plan” – “add backup plan”-   Fill in the plan name, type, cycle and other information.

Here, you may have some questions. Should I choose full backup or incremental backup? How to make the best combination of backup plan, while ensuring data integrity, can save storage resources and shorten data backup time? No hurry, let’s first understand the conceptual differences between full backup and incremental backup, and then provide you with a recommended combination plan of full backup and incremental backup.
1. Full backup
Full backup is a complete copy of all data at a certain point in time. The biggest advantage of full backup is that the restore only needs to be performed once. This greatly speeds up the recovery speed of cloud box system data. The disadvantage is that there are a lot of duplicate contents in the full backup data, and each full backup needs to consume more time and storage resources.
2. Incremental backup
Incremental backup means that after a full backup or the last incremental backup, each subsequent backup only needs to back up the files added and modified compared with the previous one. The advantage of incremental backup is obvious: no duplicate backup data! Because the amount of backup data is less, it takes less time to complete the plan and less storage! The disadvantage of incremental backup lies in data recovery. You must have the last full backup and all incremental backup data, and they must be recovered one by one in the time sequence from full backup to incremental backup, which is more troublesome than full backup.

Therefore, we can use the combination of full backup and incremental backup to save storage and speed up the recovery. Take weekly data backup as an example, you can do full backup in the early morning of every Sunday, and incremental backup in the early morning of Monday to Saturday. Why early in the morning? Because it is automatic and consumes bandwidth, there is no need to compete for resources with daily office. So how to restore the data? For example, on Thursday, it is found that the data on Wednesday is damaged. First restore the full backup on Sunday, and then restore the incremental backup from Monday to Wednesday in turn.

How to view backup log?

Click “backup record” to display a list of all executed plans. The list details the type, execution time, time consumption, total number of backup files, total size, status and remarks of the plan.

You can view the log and delete the record in more detail. Since deleting the record will delete the backup data at the same time, you need to be careful! How to deal with insufficient backup storage space? Manually delete the older data, or select the intelligent version of circular backup. If the remaining space can not support the complete execution of the next plan, the system will automatically delete the oldest version to release the storage space to complete the preset backup plan.
The value of “remote backup” of cloud box enterprise data is reflected in the realization of unattended and remote automatic backup of enterprise data; Improve data security and disaster tolerance; Easy to use, a few clicks to complete a plan.
