how to get started
in 4 Simple Steps
Go to the Setup tab and click “Add New Cluster”
After entering your cluster name and description, you will be given a kubectl command to run that will install a lightweight agent on the cluster. If you are installing via a Helm chart (e.g. using Rancher), make a note of the Cluster ID and follow the Helm chart instructions instead of using kubectl. Once installed, the agent will connect out and register itself with the CloudCasa service, completing the process.
Create a backup policy by clicking "Add new" in the policies list
A backup policy allows you to define when backups that use it will run and for how long they will be retained. You can have multiple schedules with different retention times in one policy. For example, a policy may specify the creation of hourly backups that are retained for 7 days, and daily backups that are retained for 30 days.
Go to the dashboard and click “Define Backup”
Enter the name for your backup and select your cluster. You can optionally choose what namespaces you want to protect, select resources by tag, and choose whether or not to snapshot your PVs. By default, everything will be protected. Finally, select the policy that will apply to this backup. If you create a backup with no policy defined, it will not run automatically but can be started manually on an ad hoc basis.
