There are two different types of backups within tiCrypt. The first is called a full backup and this does a complete backup of all the resources. Recovering the resource only requires the information in such a backup. The second type is an incremental backup that only backs up the delta or the changes since the last backup. All the incremental backups between the recovery point and a checkpoint are required to recover the resources covered by the backup.

Backup Strategies

Backup startegies specify what type of resource to backup and how often.

Backup domains

Backup domains specify the specific resource to back up together with the backup strategy. All the resources covered by a backup domain are backed up together.

Backup domains are simply collections of users/projects/teams that need to be backed up together. The backup domains can be set up at sub-admin+ level and do not require full admin access. Only resources that the sub-admin has access to can be included in a backup domain. Specifically:

  • if a sub-admin manages a team, the team can be added
  • if a sub-admin manages a project, the project can be added
  • if a user is in a team or a project managed by a sub-admin, the user can be added

Backup Objects

This tab shows all of the objects in the system that are backed up.

Backup: an incremental or full backup of a specific backup domain at a specific point in time.

External Backup Server: server with SFTP connectivity that holds the backup files externally.

Backup Solution: Software running on the external backup server that actually backs up the files on tapes/cloud. Except for SFTP interface availability, there is no requirement on the external backup server. In particular, any operating system and backup solution can be used.
