VM Image Backups
With no software to install or settings to configure, VM Image Backups are the easiest full server backup solution. Simply purchase the backup add-on for your cloud server and our platform gets to work!
VM Image Backups utilise ZFS and LVM "snapshots" to create an instantaneous point-in-time copy of your server's storage. Then, this copy or "snapshot" is compressed and moved to a specialist backup archive server, where it is stored on-site in the same data centre as your cloud server. Once this compression and move is complete, a further replication of the backup is made to an off-site server for the highest redundancy.
VM Image Backups operate on a weekly rota schedule, where the last 3 successful backups are kept in storage ready for fast restoration. An additional on-demand backup slot is available for manual backup creation, giving you 4 usable backup slots in total. A full server backup can be restored quickly and easily at any time through the ManageVM.net panel.
Note that VM Image Backups operate at disk block level, which means individual files cannot be restored - only the cloud server as a whole. We recommend you perform database dumps just before the snapshot schedule to ensure database integrity upon restoration - please see the FAQ for details.
