The simplest way to use a cloud storage is to upload files in order to store and share them to other users.
However, there are more advanced options for using this service. For example, to store your sites backups.
Any system on the Internet is a subject to malicious risks. Among them there can be malicious hacker attacks, virus attacks, hardware failures or user errors, which happen quite often. There is no absolute protection against these risks and the result of this may be partial or complete data loss. To minimize losses, if this has happened, it is strongly recommended creating backups of sites or other systems hosted on servers.
Backup means to copy fully or partially the site content (databases, site files, email, its settings) on a separate space in order to return to the saved version if necessary.
Foxcloud Virtual Hosting service includes a daily automatic backup. However, if ordering virtual and dedicated servers, for example, the backup needs to be configured separately. To do this you should rent an additional server, since you need to store backups separately from a working project, or save money by configuring backups in FoxCloud Storage.
When the specified number of copies is reached, previous versions are automatically deleted.
Based on these data, you can predict the size of backup space and, if necessary, switch to another object storage plan.
Then click OK, and the hosting backup will be configured!
There are many other useful options for using cloud storage. For some of them additional programs are required, for others the standard software is enough. We will continue to present you FoxCloud capabilities.
