Subject Re: Best practices for backup & restore

I think it's depends what you are backing up and restoring from. Hardware failure? Accidental
delete?  For my use case my master indexer stores the index on a San with daily snap shots
for reliability, then my live searching master is on a San as well, my live slave searchers
are all on SSD drives for speed. In my situation that means the test index is backed up daily.
A copy of the live index is backed up daily and the SSD's can die and it doesn't matter to
me.  I don't think there is a best practice, just find how risk adverse you are and how much
performance you require
