Manually Backing Up a DCS Instance

You need to manually back up data in DCS instances in a timely manner. This section describes how to manually back up data in master/standby instances using the DCS console.

By default, manually backed up data is permanently retained. If backup data is no longer in use, you can delete it manually.


At least one master/standby DCS instance is in the Running state.


  1. Log in to the DCS console.

  2. Click image1 in the upper left corner and select a region and a project.

  3. In the navigation pane, choose Cache Manager.

  4. Click the name of the DCS instance to display more details about the DCS instance.

  5. On the instance details page, click Backups & Restorations.

  6. Click Create Backup.

  7. Select a backup file format.

    Only DCS Redis 4.0 and later instances support backup file format selection.

  8. In the Create Backup dialog box, click OK.

    Information in the Description text box cannot exceed 128 bytes.

    After the backup is complete, click Download, Restore, or Delete next to the backup record as required.


    Instance backup takes 10 to 15 minutes. The data added or modified during the backup process will not be backed up.
