With a Backup Package, you can back up and restore the servers you host in an IONOS data center. Your backups are managed from the backup console. To perform backups, you must install the Backup Agent on the server to be backed up. You will then need to register the server in the backup console.

The Backup Package section lists the most important information about your backups:

Backup Package: Package you have selected for your backups.

Total Size: The total size of storage space available to you as part of your backup package.

Used: Size of the disk space occupied by your backups.

Please note: 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.

Email Address: Email address to which your backup reports should be sent.

Backup Agent: The Backup Agent is software that is needed to create backups of your servers. This software must be installed on the servers to be secured. The Backup Agent can be downloaded from the Backup Console.

Backup Console: Link to the backup console. With the Backup Console, you can configure your backups individually. When configuring your backups, you can specify, for example, whether the entire server, individual drives, or individual files are to be backed up. You can also use the Backup Console to define a schedule, set the desired retention period and compression level, and enable encryption of your backups. You can also map complex backup routines by configuring multiple backup plans.
