Backup Software / Backup Terms Glossary / Types of Backup / Serverless Backup
Serverless backup is a type of network-based backup which does not call for any resources of main server for performing backup tasks. These are two principal types of serverless backup implementation:
It is evident that serverless backup can potentially free some server resources, especially when the particular backup task terms requires many auxiliary computations or conditions such as encrypting and compressing all data.
By the other way, delegating all backup tasks for serverless backup can be problematic. As an example we mention the fact that some backup algorithms and methods used by storage devices can be a sort of “black box” for system administrator, providing too little or no control over the backup process.
