Scheduling Automatic Backups

The Replicated admin console lets you schedule automatic snapshots for routine backup.


Configure a storage destination for your backups. See How to Set Up Backup Storage.


The default retention period for snapshots is 1 month. Setting the retention only affects snapshots created after the time of the change. For example, if an existing snapshot had a retention of 1 year and is already 6 months old, and a user then uses the UI to change the retention to 1 month, the existing snapshot will still be around for another 6 months.
