We use Riak-kv Enterprise Edition as base for Riak CS to store files in.
Each customer has a separate bucket in the cluster(s) and all data is
stored multi site in 3 copies. Thus the "i lost a node" situation is
I need however, a solution for providing customers with a "single
instance" backup of their data.
I am aware of the possibility of tar, cp, scp, what-ever-copy of the
data - but this require me to take system off-line according to this:
Also I would still have to restore all customers data (and all involved
nodes) - this is not trivial!
Also I realize that the "riak-admin backup" is deprecated and should be
avoided - It seemed like an easy solution to my problem but....
The s3cmd will allow me to pull out the data and I could most likely
write a fantastic automatic script based system to use this - I do not
have the time for that and are therefor looking for a commercial or
"pre-build - adjustable" solution that will allow me to pull out a
single copy of all data stored in a bucket and keep it elsewhere.
Any ideas / solutions / quotes (as external consultant) on a solution to
A plan for recovery is obviously also needed ;-)
Thanks in advance
