A quick note on automated versus manual backups
Using conventional, manual backup is like sending a parcel specifying exactly where and when that item must be, what truck it must be on, and so on, for each step of the way until it reaches its final destination.
If anything needs to be modified, for instance, the truck arriving late, you will have to go into the system and manually tweak every stage of the procedure. That's how manual backups work, too.
Suppose you are using the equivalent backup automation to send your package. In that case, you would use a more declarative approach and have the platform's intelligence figure out how to deliver your parcel to its final destination.
If changes to the route are required, the platform will make them automatically.
