Providing Backups

The Operator stores MySQL backups outside the Kubernetes cluster: on Amazon S3 or S3-compatible storage , or on Azure Blob Storage .


The Operator currently allows doing logical cluster backups on-demand (i.e. manually at any moment).

It uses the Percona XtraBackup tool.

Backups are controlled by the backup section of the deploy/cr.yaml file. This section contains the backup.enabled key (it should be set to true to enable backups), and the number of options in the storages subsection, needed to access cloud to store backups.
