Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

Overview

This section contains pointers to get started with different solutions for creating backups and recovering from an unforeseen data loss.

In production, you should be using an orchestrator like Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, or Kubernetes in Azure Kubernetes Service.

WorkflowGen files

SMB file shares

You should have at least three different storage share to handle WorkflowGen persistent files. If you used custom SMB file shares, you should have a strategy to back up the disks for the file share. If a problem occurs, you can restore a backup. Don't forget to restore the database data to the exact time as the file share backup.

There are two main tools for backup and recovery:

Azure Kubernetes Service

Like other Azure Services, Microsoft provides guides for backups and restorations:
