Backups and disaster recovery

ThinkAgile CP provides integrated backup and disaster recovery functionality for your VM instances.

On the Backups tab for a VM instance, infrastructure admin users and VDC manager users can manage local backups (manual or automatic), quick DR backups, or external backups.

ThinkAgile CP also includes a function called Clone and Attach, which allows you to clone a vDisk or a backup vDisk from one VM and attach it to the same or a second VM.

For more information about Clone and Attach, see Clone and attach a vDisk.

In addition, ThinkAgile CP supports third-party, agent-based backup tools, such as Veeam. For more information about third-party backujp support, see the following topic:
