To enable SkySQL Cloud Backup:
Login to the SkySQL Portal.

From Cloud Backup:
Add a Database Server. A database server is used as a backup source and/or restore target.
Add Storage. Storage designates where backup data will be stored.
Add a Schedule. Schedules define whether a backup/restore operation will be on-demand or on a regular frequency.
Add a Retention Policy. Retention policies define how long backups are kept.
If you have added an on-premises database server, install the backup agent.
Now that Cloud Backup is enabled, you can manage backups.
