Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) is an easy-to-use data management service that is deployed in the public cloud to offer high agility, efficiency, security, and reliability. The service provides comprehensive protection that includes data backup and disaster recovery for Alibaba Cloud Elastic Compute Service (ECS) resources. The resources include ECS instances, databases on ECS instances, file systems on ECS instances, and ECS disks.
- ECS instance backup
HBR is integrated with the Alibaba Cloud snapshot service to provide agentless backup for ECS instances. HBR ensures instance-level crash consistency and application consistency for ECS instances whose disks are of the ESSD type. HBR creates snapshots for each disk on an ECS instance to ensure data consistency for each disk of the non-ESSD type.
- ECS database backup
HBR helps back up MySQL, Oracle, and SQL Server databases that are deployed on ECS instances.
- ECS file system backup
HBR helps back up all files on ECS instances. You can restore the files based on your business requirements.
- ECS disk backup
HBR is integrated with the Alibaba Cloud snapshot service to provide agentless backup for ECS instances and disks. You can use HBR to create crash-consistent snapshots for all disks, including system disks and data disks. Then, you can use these snapshots to back up or restore an entire disk.
