Elasticsearch backup on non-shared filesystem


(Rupesh Ranjan) #1

I have a ES cluster (v6.2.4), each data node having their data locally (in the VMs). In order to take a snapshot/backup of the cluster data, i came across this https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/modules-snapshots.html

But, i could not find a way to take backup, when its not using a shared filesystem. Is there a way i can take backup/snapshot in non-shared filesystem?

Snapshots are at the cluster level an not per node, so do require shared storage.

Thanks Christian. Is there any other way i can backup my data in this scenario?

I can not think of any reliable way to do it at the node level.

There are however options to use other types of shared storage, e.g. S3 or HDFS, if that is easier for you.
