Backup and Restore

Snow Owl 7 uses a single data source, an Elasticsearch cluster (either embedded or external). To backup and restore the data, we highly recommend the official Snapshot and Restore feature from Elasticsearch. Additionally, you can experiment with any Elasticsearch compatible index management software, like Curator for example.

We highly recommend using two remotely accessible repositories (Amazon S3, network attached storage, etc.) to back up and restore data to/from. The back up interval depends on your use case and how you are accessing the data. If you have write-heavy scenarios, we recommend a hourly backup interval, otherwise some value between hourly - daily is preferrable.
