BOSH Backup & Restore

Backup Pivotal Platform
Easily and Reliably

BOSH Backup and Restore is a command-line tool for orchestrating the backup and restore of Pivotal Platform and related services. Use it to run automated backups of Pivotal Platform, and to restore components when needed.

Structured Backup and Recovery for Cloud Foundry

Use BOSH Backup and Restore to reliably create backups of core Pivotal Platform components and their data (CredHub, UAA, BOSH Director, and ERT).

Consistent, Distributed Backups

Each component includes its own backup instructions. This decentralized structure helps keep scripts in sync. Meantime, “locking” features ensures data integrity and consistent, distributed backups across your deployment.

Multi-Cloud

Store Pivotal Platform backups in your preferred location—in the public cloud, or on-premises. Hedge against data loss by storing backups in a different cloud than your primary Pivotal Platform deployment.

Overview

BOSH Backup and Restore is a framework for backing up and restoring Pivotal Platform and other components. It triggers the backup or restore process on the deployment, and transfers the backup artifact to and from the deployment.


How it works

Operators trigger a backup or a restore for a BOSH deployment or BOSH director using the BBR binary on a jumpbox. BOSH Backup and Restore then looks at the jobs in the deployment or director for backup or restore scripts, and then triggers those scripts in the prescribed order. The artifacts are then transferred to or from the jumpbox. The operator is responsible for transferring artifacts to or from external storage.
