Worker And Its License

In this article, you will get information about the backup worker (backup agent used to perform a backup task) and its license in the case of GitLab.

In general, if you protect GitLab and other components (such as physical devices or virtualization) you don't need to install any other backup agent (worker), because you can use one of the installed Xopero ONE agents to perform backup tasks.

Otherwise, if you protect only the GitLab environment using an on-premise deployed management service, you need to install Xopero ONE agent. The agent should have connectivity with the management service and storage. It will let you perform backup tasks. You don't need to buy a license for this device. Use the "feature worker" license.

Installing Xopero ONE Worker

If you use a cloud-hosted management service (SaaS) you can use cloud-worker. This agent is automatically added to your management service during initialization.

Licensing overview

A backup agent - called a worker - can be chosen while creating a backup plan - in the Data to protect section.
