Restoring a server to a snapshot

Servers in Cleura Cloud that have the disaster recovery feature enabled can go back in time, meaning you may restore such a server to one of the available point-in-time snapshots. Here is how you can do that.

How to restore, step by step

To select a particular snapshot and restore your server to it, first off, navigate to the Cleura Cloud Management Panel. From the left-hand side vertical pane, choose Compute → Servers, then expand the detailed view of the server of interest. Select the Disaster Recovery tab and see all available snapshots listed below. For each one of those, the date and creation time are visible.
