Handy Backup / Support / Backup Terms Glossary / Types of Backup / Backup rotation scheme
A backup rotation scheme is a scheme, involving backup media rotation determining various parameters of the backup process.
Now nearly every backup program can perform to satisfy any backup scheme, Handy Backup among them.
A backup rotation scheme defines how often a backup is performed, how the data is backed up, which media is used and the amount of the media. To be more exact, it controls the periodicity of backups, the type of the backup (full or incremental), the media type (tape, CD, DVD, FTP, etc) and the amount of the media, required to complete a rotation. Backup rotation schemes are chosen according to the user's/company's needs for data security and possibilities. The most widely-known schemes are Grandfather-father-son, Tower of Hanoi, etc.
