I recently had the same problem. IMHO, trying to write a shell script to do it is painful, and it is much easier to write some reusable logic using a higher-level language with builtins like sets, dictionaries, etc. The general idea is to take configuration indicating how many files of each period you want to keep, and then decide for each file if it should ...

Decide whether you wish to implement protection at the volume level, file level, or both. By volume I mean file systems that can do data checksums and repair, like ReFS or ZFS. By file level, I mean checking files with backup software, or this ad-hoc checksum thing you are considering. In general, take care that your backups are cold aka offline, on ...

Depends on the data... For our database backups, we hash it before transferring and after testing at the first place it lands. We then push the new hash to top of a file to be read by other systems to compare their hashes to the validated hash and maek sure they got a copy of the file. If your project files are important yes do it.If not probably not worth ...

I'm posting my comment as an answer, to add url links. I'll also clarify. One more plus point for fiber: Depending on your backup software and setup, you can have backups over fiber, FC/SAN network. Using directly connected SAS tape, you can only use ethernet network for backup. Your ethernet network may be 10Gb, but still it's nice to have the alternative ...

You order whatever fits your current equipment/strategy. Performance-wise there's no difference. SAS is generally cheaper for direct-attached but Fibre Channel offers the opportunity for FC SAN integration. Our network for internal server is 10Gb Your Ethernet network doesn't matter - Fibre Channel is not compatible with that. If you're not already into FC,...

Butterfly Backup is nothing more than an rsync wrapper. Use the --link-dest flag to create hard links on files. Most likely, the file system where you are placing your catalog does not support hard links. I have a Butterfly Backup server with its catalog in an ext4 file system, and I have no problem.

You must select tools to do recovery: backup, reinstall, and restore. There is no one best solution, and we don't know your environment or favorite tools. More importantly, decide with the owners of these systems what the recovery objectives are. Perhaps the organization will pay for keeping nightly backups of the file share for 14 days, and restoring it ...

As to creating a new GKE cluster from the existing one as its clone, it looks like this option is still available but was moved to differnt section. Now it is available in ...

You can actually connect to S3 bucket from EC2 instance. https://aws.amazon.com/premiumsupport/knowledge-center/ec2-instance-access-s3-bucket/ So you can build it. However, in case you have Veeam Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions you can use SOBR to configure AWS S3 as a backup repository. https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/...

I did not backup that huge database, but a 20GB database worked fine with: mysqldump -u xxxxx --password=xxxxx --quick --max_allowed_packet=512M --skip-lock-tables --verbose -h xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx > db.sql The --skip-lock-tables is particularly good for live dumps but may cause inconsistencies.
