What Is Volume Backup Service?

Volume Backup Service (VBS) provides snapshot-based data protection for Elastic Volume Service (EVS) disks.

VBS secures your data, even if an EVS disk is faulty or encounters a logical error (for example, mis-deletion, hacker attacks, and virus infection). It allows you to effortlessly create backups of your data, and these data backups can be used to restore data quickly.

VBS supports both full and incremental backup modes. By default, the system performs a full backup initially, and then performs incremental backups. You can use a data backup generated in either backup mode to restore the source EVS disk to the state the EVS disk was in when the backup was created.

VBS allows one-click backup and restoration for the EVS disks on servers all through its easy-to-use platform. These servers are Elastic Cloud Servers (ECSs) or Bare Metal Servers (BMSs).
