Backup Storage - Accessible from another server ?

Hi

Only the server that has the backup storage can access it, along with the IPs that are routed to this server.

Further to my last reply. My first server with you is hosted in France, If I order another server from you (from one of the datacenters in France) will I be able to add this IP address and therefore access the backup space ?

Thanks
Daniel

I haven't purchased the second server yet - I was just planning for when a second one is purchased.

Thanks

Hi

Check in your control panel to see what IPs you can, as for example you cannot add a CA Server IP to an EU Server Backup Space.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for the super fast reply !

I assume that means it can be accessed from other SYS servers, rather than from other IP addresses allocated to the same server ?

Thanks

Hello

In the SYS Server under the backup option you can add additional IP Addresses to your backup storage here.

I understand that the 100GB free backup storage is only accessible from a SYS server.

Does this mean the backup provided from one server can be accessed from a second SYS server - or is it purely just from the single server it came with ?

My thought it to backup my server to this storage with the option of restoring to a replacement SYS server should a fault develop which is going to cause significant downtime.

Does anyone have any experience of this ?

Thanks
Daniel
