Scylla Cloud runs a full daily backup of your databases. It backs up data to external storage - Cloud Storage for GCP or S3 for AWS, to an S3 bucket in the same region as the node. If you use Scylla Cloud in your own AWS account (BYOA), the backups are located under your user account.
During the backup operation, Scylla Cloud deduplicates SSTables to reduce the storage space and upload time.
Backups are retained for 14 days.
When you delete a cluster, all of its backups are also deleted.
For restoring a backup from a specific date, see Restore a cluster from backup.
