Backing up and restoring DSE

This section describes how to manually backup and restore an existing DataStax Enterprise installation.

Before continuing:

  • Make sure you have sufficient diskspace to store a complete data snapshot as well as a compress TAR archive of that snapshot.

  • When restoring, do not change the installation structure. If you must change the structure of the restored installation, you must make any necessary path and configuration adjustments.

While these instructions utilize local storage, they can easily be adapted to other solutions, such as Google Cloud Storage.
