Curious about backing up virtual machines in Proxmox? We have just the video for you!

Actually, we have two videos for you because this topic is so great and Spencer had so much to share —  we had to break it into two parts! 

If you're unfamiliar, Proxmox is a powerful open-source storage tool that also simplifies your storage management from virtualization to backup.

In part one, Spencer takes us through some of the integrated features within Proxmox for backing up virtual machines to file-based storage and then jumps back into his Proxmox environment in part two to show more about creating backup jobs, scheduling these backups looking more in-depth at Proxmox's own backup server.

Check them out below or watch them separately:
