Volume Storage or Spaces for backups
I want to store my database backups (.sql exports) & important files backup (which is a .zip) outside my local server.
I’ve came across Block Storages & Object Storages. For this task, Block Storage seemed more logical to me as it’s just like a harddrive storage but then when I tried to setup, I realised it’s actually for attaching to an existing server. But if I attach a volume to my actual server, if something goes wrong and I can’t ssh, I won’t be able to access the Volume right?
Object Storages’ use-case seemed to me as CDN so I thought it’s not what I’m looking for as obviously they are private data that I won’t share on CDN.
For storing backups, what would you do? I need around 50gb - backup database every X hr (monthly) together as important files (weekly).
For this task, would you use Block Storages or Object Storages?
