This part of the interface graphically represents the time slots allocated to data backup.
Each column represents a day of the week, with midnight all the way up and 11pm all the way down.
To delete a backup schedule, click the cross at the top right of it.
To create one, click the + button at the top right of the planning. You can also double click anywhere within the planning.
To change its duration, click on the top or bottom of the backup range and move your mouse while clicking. You can move the mouse vertically to change the start or end time on the same day, or move it horizontally to change the day.
When inspecting a schedule, you can access its settings.
The inspector allows you to set:
- The backup sets to be processed during planning
- The backup sets processing order (by drag and drop within the list, the top one will be processed first)
- Bandwidth limitation
- The operation type to perform
To limit the bandwidth, select the "Limit bandwidth" check box and then enter the allocated bit rate in kilobytes per second in the field provided.
There are two available operation types :
Performs a backup on a group of Arx One servers. Those servers can be located on-site (backup appliance) or hosted in a datacenter.
The backup allows you to keep a history of the data during the entire retention period. The storage servers are independent from client operations and do not use any network sharing protocol. It provides an optimum level of security.
The backup operations are represented within the schedule by a cloud.
Replication is a "mirror" copy of your data on local media. This local media can be a local drive, an external drive, or a NAS share.
Data replication does keep modification history and uses standard data access protocols (direct access and SMB). Its level of security is lower the backup's one, but allows very fast activity restart after a hardware failure, thanks to the immediate availability of the data.
This operation is represented within the schedule by a folder.
While scheduling your backups, you can choose different types of backup:
- Online: a single backup, performed on the first server (Appliance or hosted) and then synchronized to the others
- Local replication, then online: replication is performed in priority then the online backup (two different operations)
- Online, then local replication: first the online backup is carried out then the local replication is performedsecond one locally (two different operations)
- Local replication Only: replication on the selected local media only
The default backup type is "Online".
