Backup Integrated Disk Storage
All storage qualities are also additionally available as Backup Integrated Storage (BIS).
In addition to online data storage, BIS includes a snapshot-based data backup on a secondary data storage medium in the respective other half of the twin-core data center system.
An automated backup of the primary data storage is generated in the secondary data storage on a daily basis. The data generated on the secondary data storage as a result of the backup does not decrease the data storage that you have ordered, which is still available in the vDC as before. The automated backup is usually carried out on the primary data storage at the data center location at midnight (12:00 a.m. +/- 15 minutes) local time. The snapshots are usually transferred to the backup storage within 12 hours. 35 snapshots (35 days) are stored as backup.
