In order to start scheduling automated & frequent native snapshots of your Exoscale Compute Instances, you must connect your Exoscale account.
After connecting the account, Weap.io will automatically import all your Exoscale Compute Instances and you will be able to choose the ones that should be backed-up, configure the backup frequency and finally the retention policy.
Open your Weap.io dashboard and click the
Provider Backups button located in the top menu. On the page just opened, click the button
Connect cloud account.
In order for Weap.io to be able to create snapshots of your Exocale Compute Instances, you must create an API Key. Open the Exoscale Console in a new tab, go to the
IAM page and click the button
Give an intuitive name to the key, select
Unrestricted as access type and click the
Create, you will see your new key.
Go back to Weap.io and in the opened modal select the
Exoscale provider. Type an intuitive name that will help you easily recognize the account later.
Paste the API Access & Secret key generated in the previous step and click
After clicking the
Save button, the list of your connected accounts will be reloaded and the newly connected account will appear.
The last thing you have to do is clicking the button
Synchronize account. By doing that, Weap.io will import all your Exoscale Compute Instances. If you don't press the button, Weap.io will automatically run the synchronization after some minutes.
Once synchronized, all your Exoscale Compute Instances will be visible and you will be able to configure the backup frequency, retention or even completely pause the backups for some of them.
