All backups, registries, and storage are free, and they don’t count against your data quota on FlashDrive.
There are several mechanisms that have been built inside FlashDrive to keep your data and your application safe, such as:
- FlashDrive includes a free, centralized private registry where all of your builds are stored. You can rebuild an application from one of the last 15 build versions of each application. You can also create a new application and deploy any from one of the latest 15 ‘builds’ of your applications.
- Virtual Disks are backed up each day and stored in a separate data room with data immutability. The “Backups” tab shows you all the backups available for your apps and allows you to download a specific disk or recover the data by launching an instance using this volume.
Important note about Virtual Disks recovery:
Launching a recovery on an application will create another application with the tag [RECOVERED]. This recovered application will use the same settings, environment variables, and virtual disks as your original instance.
You can use this function to recover deleted applications, migrate to another datacenter, or recover your data. If the original app has several virtual disks, they will all be recovered and deployed. You’ll only have to reconnect your domain name if needed.
Data inside your application container is not persistent and will NOT be backed-up on FlashDrive. The non-persistent data will get wiped out every time your application restarts. If you need to keep logs for further analysis make sure to create a virtual disk for your app with the appropriate path (like /var/log) in order to make sure they are not erased daily.
