NextCloud: Automatic backups of Postgres database #18

Currently, I run NextCloud's backing Postgres database on a StatefulSet, with an attached persistent volume. This setup is resilient to pods being terminated. However, I would still like to take database backups at a regular cadence.

I need to determine the cadence at which I want to take backups, and also the form with which I want to take backups (pgdump, ebs snapshot, etc...), where I want to store them, and how I will monitor that the backups are successful. I think the CronJob resource could be helpful for this.

Definition of Done

  • Implemented some method of regularly taking database backups.
  • Documented the process of restoring a database backup, verified it works, and filed a ticket to repeat the verification at a regular cadence.
  • Implemented some form of monitoring/alerting around whether backups are successful.
  • Blog post.
