How it works

DBS supports automatic download of backup sets to local storage. You must first install a backup gateway on your local server and then configure download rules in the DBS console. The backup gateway will automatically download backup sets to the local server on a regular basis. Downloaded backup sets contain data files and log files. Data files will be converted to SQL statements used in table creation in general formats such as CSV to facilitate future use. Log files will remain in the original database format.

Procedure

1. Automatically download data files

Log on to the DBS console and click Backup Schedules in the left-side navigation pane. On the Backup Schedules page, click a backup schedule to go to the Configure Task page. In the Backup set download section, click Set backup set download rules.
