I got everything working good…. ran a manual backup successfully, and ran a cron backup to AWS successfuly…
However, I don't see anything about an Automated Cron Schedule…
1) Are the cron jobs automated?
2) How often does a cron job run?
3) How do I configure the automated cron schedule?
Also, I saw mention of 'Multisite' clone manager, but I can't find anything on it…
1) Where can I get info on Multisite?
2) Can I backup multiple Joomla sites seperately to AWS using one standalone Xcloner install/script?

Hi there! In order to automate cron jobs, you need access on your server to a cron manager, please ask your hosting support if they provide that, if so, you will be able to setup there the time to run and how often.
Regarding Multisite, there isn't another version of XCloner for that, you simply install and use the same XCloner Joomla component you can download from our site. Regarding question 2), you can use XCloner to backup multiple installs as long as your Backup Start Path includes all the Joomla installs, and the mysql user you've setup in XCloner has reading access to the other databases.

I saw mention of “MultiSite XCloner Manager” as well. Maybe Google search results to this post.
I read another thread in the XCloner forum where it was clear that XCloner handles backup and restore of WordPress Multisite networks.
For individual installs of WordPress not using WordPress Multisite, based on what I read above please confirm XCloner can be used to backup and restore under the following conditions using 'one' instance as an example:
XCloner Control Site
One install of XCloner on one WordPress site.
One cron job to run one XCloner backup routine.
XCloner Source Sites and XCloner Backup Job
The same database name, database user, and database password for all databases on sites remote to the control site.
XCloner Target Site
Can be same site as the site on which XCloner resides OR
Seems pretty clear to me. I'm just asking to be sure.
Thank you in advance!
