How to Set Up Backup Storage
This topic describes the process of setting up backup storage for the Replicated snapshots feature.
Configuring Backup Storage for Embedded Clusters
You must configure a backup storage destination before you can create backups. This procedure describes how to configure backup storage for snapshots for embedded clusters created by Replicated kURL.
To configure snapshots for embedded clusters:
On the Snapshots tab in the admin console, click Check for Velero to see whether kURL already installed Velero in the embedded cluster.
If Velero was installed, update the default internal storage settings in the admin console because internal storage is insufficient for full backups. See Updating Settings in the Admin Console.
If Velero was not installed:
Optionally increase the default memory for the node-agent (restic) Pod. See Configuring Namespace Access and Memory Limit.
Configuring Backup Storage for Existing Clusters
You must configure a backup storage destination before you can create backups.
Follow this process to install Velero and configure the snapshots feature:
Install the Velero CLI. See Installing the Velero CLI.
Install Velero and configure a storage destination using one of the following procedures.
Enable access to the Velero namespace if you are using RBAC and optionally increase the default memory for the node-agent (restic) Pod. See Configuring Namespace Access and Memory Limit.
After you configure a storage destination, you can create a backup. See Creating and Scheduling Backups.
