DBaaS backup and restore

Do not use for mission-critical workloads

DBaaS feature is deprecated. We encourage you to use Percona Everest instead. Check our Migration guide.

You can add a backup schedule while creating DB clusters in DBaaS. This feature is a fusion of backup management and DBaaS in PMM. Currently, DBaaS only supports scheduled backups, which can only be enabled when a database cluster is created.

To create a scheduled backup do the following:

Prerequisites

  1. Enable Backup management:

    From the main menu, navigate to Configuration SettingsAdvanced SettingsBackup Management to enable Backup management.

  2. Add a backup storage location:

    Note

    Currently, only S3 is supported.

    From the main menu, navigate to Backups → Storage Locations → Add storage location and enter all the required information to add a backup storage location. For details, see Prepare a storage location.
