+Before a backup can run, a backup storage must be defined. Refer to the
+xref:chapter_storage[storage documentation] on how to add a storage. It can
+either be a Proxmox Backup Server storage, where backups are stored as
+de-duplicated chunks and metadata, or a file-level storage, where backups are
+stored as regular files. Using Proxmox Backup Server on a dedicated host is

+alternative. In both cases, you might want to save those backups later to a tape
+drive, for off-site archiving.
