How to create OCI backup in Oktawave control panel?
Posted by on 07.06.2013 18:13

To perform a backup in the Oktawave admin panel you should set timetable of OCI backup, which automatically moves them to the OCS storage system. To do this, follow these steps.

In the bookmark Services | OCI click instance that you are interested, and then go to the Schedulers.



In the Name field type a title by which the created scheduler will be identified. Cycle and Type fields are directly connected each other. For example, for the selected option of Cyclical, Weekly the action will be executed once a week at a specified time (Date and Time field). It is important to select Create backup in the Action box, which will then determine the specific location where the copy will be held (new folders can be created in the section Services | OCS | Add a container).

When you will fill in above parameters according to your preferences then new task appears in the list, as shown below.


After the above action done the instance will be moved (in the OVF format) to the service of object storage system (OCS). To import a copied machine, select the tab Services | Import / Export | Import and press Import. In the new window, type a name for the new instance, and the path to an image file (defined in the development of scheduler phase).



As a backup of OCI the option of cloning can also be used. In order to perform a clone go to the tab of your instance and click the Clone button at the top of the panel.



After that the cloned machine will appear in the list of instances in the section Services | OCI.

Note that the backup service is limited to 1TB of disk space. Above this value, we recommend using other solutions, such as rsync, duplicity, bacula, etc.
