Dump Indexes and Documents from one server to another

If I need to backup my Elasticsearch database, or migrate data from one server to another, is it possible to dump the data and import it to another server?

Or if my current server (ES 6.8) and I migrate to a new one (ES 8.0), is it also possible?

If you are using snapshot and restore, you have to transit on 7.2-7.17 as it is impossible to import directly to 8.0.

I am currently running version 6.8 of ES on my server and the new server will have version 8.0.
I think then I will have to do a Rolling Upgrade from 6.8 to 7.17, create the snapshot and restore it to the new server.

Does Elastic Cloud have any native features that allow this type of import?
