I am implementing a backup solution to our elasticsearch cluster.
All the indices on the whole cluster (10 data nodes, 3 master nodes) is stored on the same NetApp FAS8000 network share.
NetApp has incredibly fast snapshotting. It is desirable to use it if it works as intended.
Do you think we can rely on snapshotting with NetApp, or should we use Elasticsearchs own snapshot API?
Will elasticsearch be able to restore the backup from NetApps file snapshot?
Any experiences with NetApp snapshotting?
