Strategies allow you to drive backups of your entire set of machines in an efficient and completely centralized way.
Applying a strategy
Once an account created, you can, if you wish to do so, associate it with any strategy.
A parent or a root account can inject strategies to any of its descending accounts.
If a child account is associated to a strategy, it will be injected automatically during the following steps:
- Backup service start
- Backup start
- Every one to two hours
Creating a strategy
To create a strategy, go to the administration tab of our backup interface, and then click on the "Create new strategy" button.
To edit an existing one, you will have to use the "Edit strategy" button.
In both cases, a dedicated dialog box will appear, allowing you to type both the name and the content of the strategy.
Every strategy looks like a configuration file allowing to force settings on every target account associated to it. Those configurations are based on a key-value model.
For any further detail on those keys and all possible operations, go to the strategies dedicated section of this help portal.
