    Scheduled backup

    MCS has the ability to back up virtual machines on a schedule.

    Automatic backup is presented as a "Backup Plan" and includes all disks in an instance, adding or removing VM disks also changes the plan.


    Backups are placed in a shared data storage and are billed according to the tariff. Detailed information about the storage cost can be seen in the Billing project details.

    After the virtual machine is deleted, all backups are saved in the project. Deleting the backups created by the plan will require a manual operation to delete the plan itself. Manual backups can be deleted at any time if necessary.

    Configuring a backup plan is available from several interfaces.

    MCS control panel

    To create a plan in your MCS account, you should:

    1. Go to the "Backup" section of the "Cloud Computing" service.
    2. On the Automatic tab, click Add to add the plan.
    3. Configure backup options:

    Create a backup plan:

     $ karbor plan-create '<name>' '<provider ID>' 'Server ID' = 'OS :: Nova :: Server' = '<resource name>'

    Create backup operation:
