backup and restore compatibility on different networks
Hi, I have a cluster, cluster A, and every day I make a snapshot with vbr.py in cluster A. Once a week I copy the backupDir into a separate storage. I'd like to know if the following scenario could work. One day Cluster A dies, disk corruption, explosion or other disasters.. I only have the files in the separate storage updated to the last snapshot. I build a new cluster with new IPs but same topology, can I use the data from backupDir to launch a restore task and rebuild the database on this new cluster? Is the data from the snapshot portable in this sense? Is there an easier way to perform this task? thanks, Pietro
