In collaboration with n8n.io we published a new blog post on how to automatically create and manage database backups
Database backup is a mechanism to protect and restore a database. Periodical creation of database backups is important to ensure access to essential and critical data when the original source of data is unavailable. Planning how to make and manage database backups requires to take into account several considerations:
- What data should be stored based on its priority?
- How often should the backup be made?
- What kind of storage will be used?
- What is the retention policy for stored data?
In this article, we will show you how to implement some aspects of automated management of backups in the CrateDB database with no-code workflows in n8n.
