Configuring Cloud Backups

An important item to set up on your Cloud Servers is the backup schedule. Joseph Palumbo has this as one of his first five things to consider when starting a cloud project, and I couldn’t agree more. Rackspace’s Cloud Backup requires just a little bit of work to get going, but once it’s running you can rest easy knowing that your data is being regularly backed up.

In this screencast below, I walk you through how to set up cloud backups (more information can be found in our Knowledge Center) and even give you a snippet of code to help you to output your MySQL data to a file.
