Local Directory

Data storage is the location where the backups are stored. GitProtect allows users to define multiple datastores, and they can be assigned to any backup plans. During the backup, the agent writes data directly to the data storage, no other system element intervenes in this process. Storage management is available on the Storages tab in GitProtect Panel.

You can configure iSCSI storage as a local directory as well.

Adding storage

One of the many types is a local directory. To add new storage to GitProtect, open the Storages tab and click the (+) Add storage button. Performing this action will cause the display of the Add storage form. Regardless of the type of storage that you want to create, you're able to define the Storage name.

And Optional description.

These two fields will help you identify the storage if you'll decide to use many of them. In order to create local directory storage, expand the Storage type list and choose local directory.

The last part of the configuration is setting up the path to the location, where the data should be backed up.

The directory will be created on the computer where the GitProtect worker is working on and the backup will be stored locally on that computer.

If you will select 5 workers in your backup plan, on all of them GitProtect will create local directories and back up the data on them.
