    Offsite backup

    Team, I got two node PVE v7.3-3 (clustered) running 8 VMs (id 100 to 107). I can backup / restore the VM on these two PVE nodes all ok.

    Remote backup to B2

    How exactly should PBS be backed up to systems other than another PBS host? In particular I was wanting to set up an offsite backup to Backblaze B2. Is it fine to just take a normal file level backup of the datastore using some third party backup software? I'm assuming the backups are just...

    Off-site backups of Windows server VMs from various PVEs on the internet

    I'm considering using proxmox on 2-3 totally different sites. Details: These sites do not belong to the same organization, but management (including backup) has been delegated to a small (two person) firm. PVE boxes on each site are connected to the net using either ADSL or VDSL links...
