Database Backup folder

Cloudvanti provides a means to store backup database files within the Azure Storage account with the db-backups container. Within it, there are two folders available:

  • system folder, stores backup files exported by the system such as DB-Deploy, DB-Restore, and DB-Backup Pipeline. The files in this folder will be separated from the Staging and Production folder.
  • user folder, stores backup files that you have uploaded from the local environment or external storage.
The database files must be in bacpac format.

You can upload your .bacpac database into a storage account in Azure to be restored in the Staging or Production database.
