SQL Server data backup is a SCF-based database backup feature provided by COS. It allows you to dump SQL Server data to COS so that data can be stored persistently and protected from data loss or corruption. After you set a backup function rule for a specified bucket, SCF will scan your server backup files periodically and dump them in the bucket.
Log in to the COS console.
On the left sidebar, click Application Integration > Data Backup.
Find SQL Server Backup and click Configure Backup Rule to go to the rule configuration page.
Click Add Function.
If you haven't activated SCF, go to the SCF console to activate it and authorize the service as instructed.
In the pop-up window, configure the following items:
|Function Name||Uniquely identifies a function and cannot be modified after being set. You can view the function in the SCF console.|
|Associated Bucket||A bucket to store SQL Server backup files.|
|Trigger Period||Triggers the backup operation for the SQL Server backup function. Every day, every week, and custom periods are supported.|
|Cron Expression||If you use a custom period, you can use Cron to specify the trigger period rule. Cron follows the local Standard Time. For detailed configuration policies, see Timer Trigger Description.|
|Database Instance||SQL Server instance list of the region where the current bucket resides|
|Delivery Path||Delivery path prefix of the backups. If not specified, backups will be stored in the root directory of the bucket.|
