Establishing backups

Rackspace data centers are secure and reliable, but you might still occasionally find reasons to restore your data or your operating system to an earlier time.

  • Use Cloud Images to be sure you can quickly create a new cloud server configured just like the one you have.

  • Use Cloud Backup to create incremental backups of a single cloud server.

  • Use Cloud Block Storage to create data on a portable drive image, moveable from one server to another.
