What Is Cloud Server Backup Service?

What Is Cloud Server Backup Service?


Cloud Server Backup Service (CSBS) can create a backup for an ECS (including the configuration specifications of the ECS and data on system and data disks), and restore the service data of the ECS by using the backup data. This service ensures the security and correctness of your data.


CSBS has the following functions:

  • ECS backup
  • Policy-driven data backup
  • Backup data management
  • Backup replication and saving
  • ECS data restoration using backups or replicas

Restrictions and Limitations

  • CSBS provides cloud DR protection to ECSs created by ManageOne operation plane.
  • Elastic Volume Service (EVS) disks of an ECS must be deployed on the same production storage. Otherwise, the ECS cannot be backed up.
  • Crash-consistent backup of disk data is supported. Application-consistent backup is not supported.
  • An ECS can be added to a CSBS instance only.
  • An ECS with shared volumes (one ECS disk is shared by multiple ECSs) cannot be backed up.
  • CSBS does not support consistent backup of multiple ECSs.
  • System backup and restoration are supported. All EVS disks of an ECS must be backed up or restored at the same time. File- or directory-level restoration is not supported.
  • EVS disk snapshots generated during backup will occupy space of the production storage. (The space occupied by the EVS disk snapshots is equal to the service change amount of the original EVS disk during the snapshot retention period.)
  • It is not recommended to back up an ECS whose capacity exceeds 32 TB.
  • This service supports backup of heterogeneous VMwar vSphere 5.1/5.5/6.0/6.5 (VMs are created on the FusionSphere OpenStack) cloud servers (only for Type II and Type III scenarios).
    • Heterogeneous VMware system backup does not apply to ECSs configured with bare disks, RDM disks, disks connected to a shared SCSI controller, or SR-IOV.
    • When backing up a VMware cloud server, you are not advised to add new EVS disks to the ECS; otherwise, the backup may fail.
    • You are not advised to use the vCenter/ESXi to add disks to VMware ECSs. Backup and restoration of VMware ECSs are not supported.
    • Backup for the data stored in the vVOL and vSAN production storage is not supported.
  • ECSs in the heterogeneous VMware vSphere 5.1/5.5/6.0/6.5 environment interconnected through HiCloud cannot be backed up.
  • Backup for the VMware vSphere 5.1/5.5/6.0/6.5 VMs (VMs are created on the VMware platform and managed by FusionSphere OpenStack in a unified manner) managed by FusionSphere OpenStack is not supported.
  • BMSs cannot be backed up.
  • The advanced SAN storage solution is required for the production storage (one EVS disk of ECSs corresponds to one LUN on the storage device).
  • In the same region, cross-AZ replication and recovery are supported. For different regions, cross-region replication and local recovery are supported but cross-region recovery is not supported.
