How to use retention and versioning when using GitProtect and S3 storage?

You are allowed to use one mechanism for versioning and retention - you can choose GitProtect’io settings or define rules on your S3 storage.

We recommend using GitProtect.io versioning and retention settings for your backups for several reasons:

  • It is better to set up backup versioning and retention directly in backup and recovery software dedicated to your data protection.
  • GitProtect gives you very flexible versioning and retention options (by indicating a number of copies, time range, or store infinitely)
  • GitProtect always makes sure not to disturb the continuity of the version chains.
