Restore backups and snapshots

This short guide explains in general terms the CrateDB Cloud backup policy for automatically generating snapshots of the cluster data and how one can use such snapshots to restore data. A more detailed technical discussion of how CrateDB handles snapshots can be found in the CrateDB documentation.

CrateDB Cloud’s backup policy

CrateDB Cloud takes hourly snapshots which are kept for 14 days.

Restore a snapshot

Once a snapshot of a table or partition has been created, it can be restored. Restoring a snapshot resets that table or partition to the state it was in when that snapshot was created.

You can restore a snapshot in two ways. One option is to contact CrateDB Cloud support. We are happy to assist. Alternatively, you can use the CrateDB Admin UI to do it yourself. Please refer to the reference in the documentation for assistance.
