TonioRoffo Posted March 16, 2021 Share Posted March 16, 2021 Hello, I'd like to inquire what the best way is to set up backup to cloud - Amazon S3. I don't have much Amazon S3 experience but would like to keep the backups fast & the cost low, and I'm not sure how to proceed. * If I set up backup with incrementals & weekly full backups, my S3 costs will surely be low because I don't download anything. However, my weekend backups will be fulls and take considerable time. Correct? * If I set up backup with incrementals & synthetic fulls, does that work well with S3? Will my backups be faster or will S3 use my local transporters to merge the backups and create high costs due to downloading from S3? * In a local test (not to S3) I saw that backup copy jobs ignore the synthetic setting and revert to full backups - in normal backup jobs it works. Is this true for S3 also? I'd love to read some advice from people running backups to S3 at this moment so I make the right choice? Thanks! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
