Documentation for version v1.4 is no longer actively maintained. The version you are currently viewing is a static snapshot. For up-to-date documentation, see the latest version.
A volume snapshot location is the location in which to store the volume snapshots created for a backup.
Velero can be configured to take snapshots of volumes from multiple providers. Velero also allows you to configure multiple possible
VolumeSnapshotLocation per provider, although you can only select one location per provider at backup time.
Each VolumeSnapshotLocation describes a provider + location. These are represented in the cluster via the
VolumeSnapshotLocation CRD. Velero must have at least one
VolumeSnapshotLocation per cloud provider.
A sample YAML
VolumeSnapshotLocation looks like the following:
apiVersion: velero.io/v1 kind: VolumeSnapshotLocation metadata: name: aws-default namespace: velero spec: provider: aws config: region: us-west-2 profile: "default"
The configurable parameters are as follows:
||String||Required Field||The name for whichever storage provider will be used to create/store the volume snapshots. See [your volume snapshot provider’s plugin documentation] for the appropriate value to use.|
||map[string]string||None (Optional)||Provider-specific configuration keys/values to be passed to the volume snapshotter plugin. See [your volume snapshot provider’s plugin documentation] for details.|
