No, the creation of a backup will not affect the performance of your server
The speed of the backup creation and restoration process depends on the:
- size of the volumes
- volume performance type
- overall load of the backup system.
If you to use more frequent backups and speed up the restore process, it is recommended to use the volumes with a better performance type.
If you are using a database on the server, it is recommended to backup it separately.
You can store the database backups on a specific volume attached to a server and use the Server Backup Management Service to automatically backup this volume.
