Backup Standard

Backup Standard is included in Hosting Solutions services such as Dedicated Servers and VPS (starting from the Gold version) and must be activated via ticket from your control panel. It consists of the backup copy of a folder (e related subfolders) of the server chosen by the user and communicated to the technical staff at the time of the request for activation of the service of backup.

The backup frequency is daily and the last 7 copies are kept in the backup space, i.e. the backups of the last 7 days. Hosting Solutions will communicate the time slot in which it will backup the folder (generally night) so that the user can adjust the loading of the data to be saved in the chosen folder. For example, if the planned activity of Hosting Solutions backup takes place between 02:00 and 05:00 every night, it will be appropriate that the copy activity of the data to be saved is completed by the user before 02:00.

The maximum size of the backup space is 25 GB which therefore, after the first week, will contain all the last 7 copies of security.

Smart Storage

The backup policy (data, frequency) must be indicated to the technical staff who will then implement it with the characteristics requests. The backup task does not involve any additional software installation on the server, so it will not burden your performance of the server itself.

The size of the base package backup space is 50 GB and can increase as needed.

The backup policy (data, frequency, etc) must be set by the user using the appropriate interface of the Acronis software.
