Back up the cloud native application data

Contributors netapp-soumikd

You can either assign a pre-canned policy or create a policy and then assign it to the database. Once the policy is assigned, the backups are created as per the schedule defined in the policy. You can also create an on-demand backup.

Note When creating ASM diskgroups for Oracle, ensure that there are no common volumes across diskgroups. Each diskgroup needs to have dedicated volumes.

Steps

  1. In the Applications page, if the database is not protected using any policy, click Assign Policy.

    If the database is protected using one or more policies, you can assign more policies by clicking icon to select the action > Assign Policy.

  2. Select the policy and click Assign.

    The backups will be created as per the schedule defined in the policy.

    Note The service account (SnapCenter-account-<account_id>) is used for running the scheduled backup operations.

Create on-demand backups

After assigning the policy, you can create an on-demand backup of the application.

Steps

  1. In the Applications page, click icon to select the action corresponding to the application and click On-Demand Backup.

  2. If multiple policies are assigned to the application, select the policy, retention value, and then click Create Backup.
