  16. LET’S TALK BACKUPS

  17. There is no 
 one size fits all solution for

    backups
  18. Small sites Shared hosting Backups by hosting provider Did not

    do anything regarding backups ourselves Hosting Up until a few year ago
  19. Bigger applications Learned basic server management through resources like serversforhackers.com

    Digital Ocean Forge / Ansible Hosting How we are currently doing it
  20. HORROR STORIES

  21. Horror Story #1 Earlier today, our Cloud Operations team was

    alerted to some performance issues affecting the physical server that hosts your droplet. … The damage was serious enough that this droplet was lost and not able to be restored. One fine morning I got this mail from Digital Ocean Full story: https://murze.be/2016/02/today-digitalocean-lost-our-entire-server/
  22. Horror Story #2 This message is a follow-up to our

    previous emails. Despite the very best efforts of our engineering and datacenter operations teams, unfortunately the host machine that your cloud server resides on was not able to be recovered. At this point, there is complete data loss on the server. Horror can occur everywhere. A mail from Rackspace: Source: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3982571
  23. Ok, I’ll just use
 the backup service 
 from my

    cloud provider
  24. Horror Story #3

  25. Horror Story #3

  26. Relying on DO backups 
 is not enough! Only weekly

    snapshots Potentially a lot of data could get lost All the backups in the same datacenter If data center is down backups can’t be accessed or restored
  27. SOLUTIONS

  28. DIY: A bash script Hosted service: https://ottomatik.io/ Open source: BackupPC,

    Bacula Solutions Do not put your eggs in one basket
  29. https://serversforhackers.com/video/backup-to-s3 interface Dumps the database with mysqldump Uploads dump +

    files using was cli tool to S3 Use cron to frequently run script Downside: no notifications when something goes wrong
 
 A bash script
  30. Backups as a service Not free Easy to use interface

    Bring your own storage Ottomatik.io
  31. Open source software Installed onto a control server SSH’s into

    servers to be backed up Uses hard links to save disk space Some system administration knowledge is required to setup up BackupPC SERVERS BackupPC SSH
