Volume Backup Service (VBS)

Disk-based backup service

Backups are an elementary security measure for every service. In the cloud, too, service providers should create backup copies of virtual servers at regular intervals. The Volume Backup Service (VBS) creates backups of the data and operating system volumes (storage media) of an Elastic Cloud Server (ECS), including the specifications of an ECS. In the event of damage or loss, e.g. in the case of defective updates or inadvertent deletion of data, the Volume Backup Service can be used to restore an older backup copy. If data has to be restored in this way, all required information is held in one place and available quickly.


Volume Backup Service in the Open Telekom Cloud

With the Volume Backup Service, the Open Telekom Cloud offers a hard disk-based backup service. The backups can be created manually or automatically based on backup policies, for example at specified times (minimum interval: one hour) and with specific retention periods. While the initial backup contains a complete copy of the data, later backups only store changes to the previous version (incremental backups). This considerably reduces the amount of space required, thereby lowering costs. To ensure the highest possible degree of availability, Open Telekom Cloud storage services use the principle of redundancy, i.e. multiple copies of the data stored in multiple data centers. The Cloud Server Backup Service offers backups of entire application landscapes.
