The following diagram illustrates how data flows during backup in a Phoenix CloudCache deployment.


Step Description

Step 1


Phoenix agent backs up the server data according to the schedule defined in the backup policy. At the scheduled time, Phoenix Cloud initiates the backup request and forwards it to Phoenix agent.

Note: Phoenix CloudCache maintains a persistent connection with Phoenix Cloud.

Step 2


  1. Phoenix agent backs up the data to Phoenix CloudCache.
  2. Phoenix agent saves the metadata to the storage that Phoenix Cloud assigns for backup.

Step 3


As per the predefined schedule, Phoenix CloudCache synchronizes the backup data to the storage that Phoenix Cloud assigns. 

Note: Phoenix CloudCache establishes an on-demand connection with cloud storage. After a synchronization is complete, the connection with Phoenix Cloud storage is terminated. For the next synchronization operation, Phoenix CloudCache establishes a connection with the cloud storage that Phoenix Cloud assigns. 

Note: Administrators must configure the synchronization schedule and a bandwidth that Phoenix CloudCache can consume. For more information, see Configure Phoenix CloudCache.
