Define the backup interval for Cloud Apps

Overview

As an inSync administrator, you can define the frequency of backups that are automatically triggered for Cloud Apps.

You can specify how many times inSync should trigger automatic backups in a day or in a week.

 

 

 

 

  • The device that is associated with a Cloud App account must be switched on and connected to inSync Cloud to trigger scheduled automatic backups. If the device is not connected to inSync Cloud, the inSync Connector should be in the Connected state to trigger scheduled automatic backups.
  • inSync administrators can manage the backup interval through profiles. Automatic backup schedules cannot be defined on an individual user level. 

Druva has updated the backup interval labels available for scheduling automatic backups with the Cloud Update on September 08, 2018. The new labels are mapped to the earlier backup labels namely 2 days, 1 day, 12 hours, and so on.

For existing customers, the following table lists the mapping of old and new backup intervals.

Existing backup schedules are not affected. Only the UI labels are renamed to new labels as mentioned in the table.
