Backing up to your own cloud accounts

Although Relica offers the fully-managed, highly-available Relica Cloud for reliable off-site backups, you can also back up to different cloud providers or remotes of your own as backends or destinations for your backups. This feature is included with your membership subscription at no extra cost.

Relica currently supports these providers or backends:

When you create a custom cloud destination in Relica, you'll be asked to select the provider or type of backend, give it a name, and specify the necessary configuration and credentials.

Your cloud credentials are stored in our database so that they can be accessed by all the computers on your account and to make restores available via our web interface, but they are encrypted with your encryption password so we cannot read them.

Configuration varies from provider to provider; some fields may even be left blank. Consult your provider's documentation to know which fields to set to access it properly.
