Database Backup:Upgrade a backup schedule

Last Updated:Feb 06, 2024

Database Backup (DBS) provides various backup schedule types, including micro, small, medium, large, and xlarge. A backup schedule type with higher specifications offers higher performance at a lower unit price. You can upgrade your backup schedule based on the amount of backup data and restoration performance requirements.


For information about the free quota for data backup of each backup schedule type and how to select an appropriate backup schedule type, see Select a backup schedule type.
