Step 1. Select the Backup Mode

On the first wizard step, select the backup mode.

The following modes are available:

  • Local or cloud backup. Back up your data directly to a local or cloud storage

This is the default way to back up your data, without introducing any intermediate storage between the backup source and destination.

  • Hybrid backup*. Back up your data first to local storage, then upload backup to a cloud

Note that creating multiple plans to back up the same databases may lead to a LSN (Log sequence number) inconsistency which invokes full backup instead of differential one

It is not possible to switch your existing backup plans to a hybrid mode. Create a hybrid backup plan from scratch in this case
