Backup Vertica to S3
I want to start backing up my database (76TB) to S3, some questions:
1. How can I know the backup file size (full backup)?
2. How can I estimate how long the backup will take? (the cluster isn't at AWS)
3. Using the vbr.py utility, How do I configure the backup location to be on S3?
4. Do I need to save some space on the cluster hosts for the backup? (I know that the process create a file before it sent to S3).
5. ... any more Insights... ?
