If you have not yet set up a Backup Package, you must enable it to create and manage backups of your servers. The storage space that your backups consume in total is charged centrally in your backup package. You can configure your backups individually in the Backup Console, which is set up separately for each data center. To activate a backup package:

Requirements:

You are in the Backup > Backup Package area.

  • To activate a backup package, click .
  • Select the desired backup package.

    Please note: Each backup package has a specified amount of disk space that will be used for your backups. When the disk space of your package is used up and your backup plan is configured accordingly, additional backups are automatically created and saved. In this case the cost for each additional GB is $0.12 per month. Alternatively, you can select the Pay Per Use backup package. If you choose the pay-per-use package, you only pay for the storage space you use.
     
  • Enter the notification e-mail address.
  • Read and accept the privacy policy.
  • Click Enable Backup Package.

The backup package is activated. You can then open the Backup Console and download the Backup Agent for your servers.
