Backup jobs on running instances can be either agentfull (by installing our agent on your virtual machines, your instances will be freezed to a coherent state before snapshots are triggered) or agentless. You can choose
backup typology by selecting “yes” or “no” in “consistency” section.
Both associating all the instances of infrastructure to the same backup job and installing our agent on each of them ensure also a coherent recovery point of the whole infrastructure.
Select “yes” if you need to start up your backup job immediately after the creation of the new backup job. By selecting “no” you will be able to start it later.
You can add retention rules (max 5) to backup jobs by choosing the frequency of backups and the number of backups you need to retain.
Note: each instance associated to the backup job you are creating will follow the rules you are setting up.
If you need to change/add retention rules, you can select a backup job from the backup jobs list and, by selecting “resources” tab, you can edit retention rules associated by clicking on “edit resources” button.
