Backup & Restore¶
Elasticsearch Backup and Restore¶
Elasticsearch provides snapshot functionality which is great for backups because they can be restored relatively quickly.
- The main features of Elasticsearch snapshots are:
They are incremental
They can store either individual indices or an entire cluster
They can be stored in a remote repository such as a shared file system
The destination for snapshots must be a shared file system mounted on each Elasticsearch node.
For further details see the Official Elasticsearch snapshot documentation.
