Security and Reporting – role-based access controls give administrators greater control over security and an advanced reporting system to evaluate the size and time of backup/restore operations.

Available Backup Strategies for Scale Computing

    All the operations are using REST API to communicate with the HC3 cluster.

  • Export Storage Domain Strategy – Export storage domain strategy performs the export using a Samba server running on a node machine. This strategy does not require a proxy VM.
  • Disk Attachment Strategy – Disk attachment strategy performs the export using a proxy VM running on the HC3 cluster.
