Proxmox is a virtualization platform that includes a range of features and tools for creating and managing virtual machines (VMs) and related resources, such as storage and networking. Proxmox also includes a built-in backup system that can be used to create and manage backups of VMs and other resources on the platform.
To use the Proxmox backup system, you will need to set up a Proxmox server as a backup server. This can be done by installing the Proxmox software on a physical or virtual server and configuring it to act as a backup server. Once the backup server is set up, you can use it to create and manage backups of VMs and other resources on the Proxmox platform.
To create a backup with the Proxmox backup system, you can use the Proxmox web-based graphical user interface (GUI) or the Proxmox command-line interface (CLI). You will need to specify the source of the backup (e.g., a VM or a storage volume), the destination of the backup (e.g., a local or remote storage location), and any other relevant options, such as the frequency of the backup and any exclusions or limitations.
Proxmox backup system is a powerful and flexible tool that can be used to create and manage backups of VMs and other resources on the Proxmox platform. It is an important part of any Proxmox deployment and can help ensure that your VMs and other resources are protected and can be restored in the event of a failure or data loss.
