Need a scheme to backup to cloud and local backup with slow internet connection.
Thanks for raising these questions.
1. Cases with slow upload link are very common and we’ve built a short list of best practices:
1.1. For image plan don’t use hybrid and use 2 plans instead: 1 for local and 1 for cloud.
1.2. Use the synthetic full whenever possible (it’s supported for Wasabi, but not for hybrid plans) to re-use what’s already in the cloud and that would eliminate the need to upload everything from the local machine.
1.3. Synthetic full will be much faster.
2. Using Cloudberry/MSP360 Drive as a backup destination is a bad idea. Backup apps usually need high performance when executing their jobs, Drive is a personal use software that wasn’t designed to be a backup destination.
The only problem is that the backup in a backup would require two restores process to retrieve files.
can you please elaborate here? I’m not sure I understand it.
4. Syncing a local backup folder to the backup folder in the cloud shouldn’t be performed manually. Currently the hybrid job does exactly this, but it doesn’t work together with the synthetic full, this is why it’s not recommended with slow links to the cloud. With the new backup format that we’re working on at the moment this will be addressed shortly after we release it.
