FeatureBase Community databases can be backed-up and restored for a number of reasons, including the following:
- General backup and restore of a FeatureBase database
- Resizing a FeatureBase cluster
- Making changes to your
featurebase.confsettings, including the cluster
Table of contents
Use the following checklist to verify backups function correctly.
|Backup source||Backup a FeatureBase cluster|
|Set up test environment||Backup testing can be performed using a single local node provided the system has sufficient memory and disk space.|
|Restore source backup to test environment||Restore a FeatureBase cluster|
|Test target||Run queries and verify results are as expected|
When you choose to migrate data from one cluster to another, the destination cluster resources (HD size, memory and processor cores) can be:
- identical to the source cluster
- larger than the source cluster
Clusters cannot be migrated to systems with less resources than the source.
