- Backup and restore of Elasticsearch snapshots of the CloudBees Analytics server on Kubernetes
The ability to create a backup of Elasticsearch indices using snapshots has been added to the CloudBees CD/RO Helm chart. This new capability enables you to protect your valuable analytics data.
The CloudBees Analytics server uses Elasticsearch as an analytics engine. The only reliable and supported way to back up Elasticsearch data is by taking a snapshot. You cannot back up Elasticsearch data by making copies of the data directories of its nodes. There are no supported methods to restore any data from a file system level.
