Backup Manager options - What's the difference?

So in our cloud instance, there are two backup options as shown below.  What's the difference between "Create backup for cloud" and "Create backup for server"?

Hello Andrew,

The second option - "Create backup for server" is used if you want to migrate your data from Cloud to a server instance. There are some differences between Cloud and server applications, that's why we have this option, for compatibility purposes.

Normally, if you just want to do a normal backup from your instance - or if you want to migrate to another Cloud instance - you select the "Create backup for cloud" option.

Thanks Luiz.

That's the information I was looking for.
