Backups

What are backups?

VPS and VDS Server Backups

backups are copies of your server’s disk. You can create backups when you need them and keep them forever or until you decide to delete them. Backups are daily copies of your server’s disk. Our system will automatically select a timeframe in which the backups will be created once the feature is activated. Backups will automatically be deleted if you delete the server.

For every server, there are seven slots for backups. If all slots are full and you create an additional one, then the oldest backup will be deleted. When creating backups, we recommend that you power down your server to ensure data consistency on the disk. You may, however, also create them from a running system. In this situation, we will try to flush the disk caches of your operating system using Qemu Guest Agent before snapshotting. However, in this situation, we cannot guarantee data consistency.

Important note: backups do not include any volumes which are attached to your server. Please use our snapshot feature if you want to precisely control when your disk gets saved.
