Brackup::Target::Amazon - backup to Amazon's S3 service
In your ~/.brackup.conf file:
type = Amazon
aws_access_key_id = ...
aws_secret_access_key = ....
aws_prefix = ....
backup_prefix = ....
All options may be omitted unless specified.
- (Mandatory.) Must be "Amazon".
- (Mandatory.) Your Amazon Web Services access key id.
- (Mandatory.) Your Amazon Web Services secret password for the above
access key. (not your Amazon password)
- If you want to setup multiple backup targets on a single Amazon account
you can use different prefixes. This string is used to name the S3 buckets
created by Brackup. If not specified it defaults to the AWS access key
- Sets the location constraint of the new buckets. If left unspecified, the
default S3 datacenter location will be used. Otherwise, you can set it to
'EU' for an AWS European data center - note that costs are different. This
has only effect when your backup environment is initialized in S3 (i.e.
when buckets are created). If you want to move an existing backup
environment to another datacenter location, you have to delete its buckets
before or create a new one by specifing a different
- When storing the backup metadata file to S3, the string specified here
will be prefixed onto the backup name. This is useful if you are
collecting backups from several hosts into a single Amazon S3 account but
need to be able to differentiate them; set your prefix to be the hostname
of each system, for example.
