Just to let you know, I wrote a small utility in bash. It relies on curl to talk to the scaleway API.
Its role is to maintain backups remotely and automatically.
The documentation and the source code is here:
Feel free to comment or submit pull requests
Backups are named like
servername-keyword-index , where
servernameis the name of your scaleway instance
keywordis whatever you want (better use alphanumeric)
indexis an automatic number that gets incremented on each new backup
Once done, the script destroys the previous backups that specifically match the given
It might help a few that struggle with the API (as I did for some of them):
- list tour servers
- list images of your servers
- create a new image (and snapshots)
- delete old images (and snapshots)
