Cloud Backup is a centralized backup service that makes it easy and cost-effective for you to backup your application data in the HostWinks Cloud, helping you meet your business and regulatory backup compliance requirements. HostWinks Backup makes protecting your HostWinks storage volumes, databases, and file systems simple by providing a central place where you can configure and audit the HostWinks resources you want to backup, automate backup scheduling, set retention policies, and monitor all recent backup and restore activity.
For Cloud services that introduce backup functionality built on Cloud Backup provides a lifecycle feature that allows you to automatically transition your recovery points from a warm storage tier backed by Cloud that provides millisecond access time to your backups to a lower-cost cold storage tier backed by Glacier that provides a restore time of 3-5 hours.
To get started with Cloud Backup, create a backup policy called a backup plan, which defines parameters such as how frequently to backup your resources and how long to store those backups. You can then assign resources to backup plans and Cloud Backup will start automatically backing up these resources and managing backup retention on your behalf according to your backup plan. You can use Cloud Backup’s central console to view your Cloud resources that are being protected, restore from a backup, and monitor backup and restore activity.
Cloud Backup provides a centralized console, automated backup scheduling, backup retention management, and backup monitoring and alerting. Cloud Backup also offers advanced features such as lifecycling backups to a low-cost storage tier, backup storage and encryption that is independent from its source data, and backup access policies.
Backups from Cloud services that introduce backup functionality built on Cloud Backup are encrypted in-transit and at-rest independently from the source services, giving your backups an additional layer of protection. Encryption is configured at the Backup Vault level. Backups from services with existing backup capabilities are encrypted using the source service’s backup encryption methodology. For example, EBS snapshots are encrypted using the encryption key of the volume the snapshot was created from.
Backing up your data is an important step towards protecting your application and ensuring that you meet your business and regulatory backup compliance requirements. Even durable resources are susceptible to threats like bugs in your application that could cause accidental deletions or corruption. Building and managing your own backup workflows across all your applications in a compliant and consistent manner can be complex and costly. HostWinks Backup removes the need for costly, custom solutions or manual processes by providing a fully managed, policy-based backup solution that provides automated backup scheduling and backup retention management.
