Automatic Backup

Definition - What does Automatic Backup mean?

Automatic backup is a type of data backup model that requires little or no human intervention in backing up and storing data from a local network/system to a backup facility.

Automating the backup process saves time and complexity required to manually back up a computer, network or IT environment.

Techopedia explains Automatic Backup

Automatic backup is primarily enabled through backup software that automates the entire backup process. Typically, automatic backup first requires an administrator to configure the systems/network that need to be backed up. Once configured, the data and applications from the selected device are automatically copied, transferred over the network and stored on the backup device. The administrator just needs to specify the type and time of the automatic backup within the backup software.
