You can use Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) to back up shares of Cloud Storage Gateway (CSG). You can then restore the shares if they are lost or damaged. This topic describes how to back up shares of a gateway.

Prerequisites

A gateway is registered. For more information, see Register a gateway.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the HBR console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Backup > CSG Backup.
  3. In the top navigation bar, select a region.
  4. On the Storage Gateways tab, find the gateway whose shares you want to back up, and click Back Up in the Actions column.
  5. In the Create Backup Plan panel, select the share that you want to back up and click Next.
  6. In the Configure Backup Plan step of the Create Backup Plan panel, set the following parameters and click OK.
    Parameter Description
    Plan Name The name of the backup plan. By default, a random name is used.
    Source Paths The paths to the source files, for example, \windows\system or /usr/local/bin.
    Start Time The time at which the backup plan starts. The time is accurate to seconds.
    Backup Interval The interval at which incremental backup is performed. Units: hours, days, or weeks.
    Retention Policy Limited or Permanent.

    If you select Limited, you must select the types of the files that you want to back up from the Select File Type drop-down list.

    If you select Permanent, backup files are permanently retained.

    Retention Period This parameter is required only if the Retention Policy parameter is set to Limited. Specify the retention period of backup data. Unit: days, weeks, months, or years.
    Throttle Bandwidth Specifies whether to throttle the bandwidth. To guarantee business continuity, you can limit the bandwidth that is used for data backup during peak hours.

    If you turn on Throttle Bandwidth, you must select the Time Range (Hour) based on your business requirements, enter the Max Bandwidth (MB) for backup during the specified time range, and then click Add.
