SharePoint 2010 provides two types of backup categories in SharePoint 2010. They are known as Granular and Farm.

Granular:
- Granular has two main types which are site collections and Web site or list.

- These backup mainly focuses on single content database.

- Granular backups are content backups that work on the site collection, website, or list level.

- These backups can be performed using Central Administration, STSADM, or PowerShell commands.

- But it is not recommended to run site collection backups if your site collection is larger than
around 15 GB.

Farm:
- These are bascially towards web farms and web application levels.

- These are basically into farm configurations, solution packages, web applications, service applications, whole content databases etc.

- These backups can be performed using Central Administration, STSADM, or PowerShell commands.
