Configuring Offsite Storage for Disaster Recovery Backups (Self-Service Deployments)


When the initial DR backup is complete, configure at least one offsite location for your disaster recovery backups. For an offsite location, you can specify a local drive, a network share, the Metallic Cloud, or another cloud library.

You can retain up to seven database copies for free on the Metallic Cloud.

For a Cloud library, specify retention of at least fourteen (14) days to enable recovery from an event that might go unnoticed for up to two weeks.
