-Cloud backups, also called Off-site or Server side backups, are an **easy and secure way to store your router'​s configuration on our servers.** The service lets you store **up to seven different configurations** and manage them through the Foris user interface. Unlike the configuration backup under the ''​Maintenance tab'',​ cloud backups let you store your configuration directly on our servers. This means that if you take your router back to factory settings, you don’t have to configure everything again or look for configuration files on your computer and you can very easily restore your previously saved configuration. Once you install the package, backups will be created automatically every night, but you can also create backups manually. +//Cloud backups//, also called ​//Off-site// or //Server side backups//, are an **easy and secure way to store your router'​s configuration on our servers.** The service lets you store **up to seven different configurations** and manage them through the Foris user interface.
