Backing up and restoring a cloud volume

Protecting your data is an important aspect of data management. Cloud Volumes Service has the ability to send CVS service-type volumes to Google Cloud Object Storage for long-term backup and archive. This data-management feature complements volume snapshots, which provide access for development or test use cases that require short-term recovery.

This backup feature is in preview (beta). Access to the backup capability is currently available through the API.

See Cloud Volumes APIs for examples that show how to create backups, list backups, and restore from a backup.
