Subject backup strategies
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2011 12:07:50 GMT
Hi Everyone,

One of the fears I've always had with DFS and building up these large
data stores, like Cassandra, is what to do in the event of an
unexpected fault or failure.  This happened with gmail yesterday ...
... Is anyone performing any types of backup operations for the data
in cassandra ... to safeguard against the unlikely chance of losing or
corrupting everything?

Be interested to know how you've accomplished this.  Archiving /
backup is important ... but have you ever tested the restore?

thanks in advance,

Sasha Dolgy
