Manage Compute Zone Backup Resource Zones

Backup resource zones include backup resources built on plugins that enable integration of a third-party backup service with OnApp. You can attach backup resource zones to compute zones if you complete the following procedures: 

Adding a backup resource zone to the destination compute zone enables you to handle virtual server backups on the integrated system. As a result, virtual servers that run on compute resources in this compute zone can be backed up by means of a backup plugin. 

In this document, you can find information on how to attach and remove backup resource zones to and from compute zones. 


Attach Backup Resource Zone to Compute Zone


To attach a backup resource zone to compute zone, follow the next steps:


  1. Go to your Control Panel > Settings menu. 
  2. Click the Compute Zones icon.
