Step 4. Specify Policy Scheduling Options
You can instruct Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to start the backup policy automatically according to a specific backup schedule. The backup schedule defines how often data stored in file systems added to the backup policy will be backed up.
To help you implement a comprehensive backup strategy, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure allows you to create schedules of the following types:
- Daily — the backup policy will create restore points repeatedly throughout a day on specific days.
- Weekly — the backup policy will create restore points once a day on specific days.
- Monthly — the backup policy will create restore points once a month on a specific day.
Combining multiple schedule types together allows you to keep restore points for longer periods of time. For more information, see Enabling Harmonized Scheduling.
