Hi, on top of BalenaOs, I’m running a database. What is the recommended way is backup the data? Is there a way to do that within BalenaCloud?
Hi there, are you running the database on the device?
As a starting point, you will want to make that data on the device is persisted, which is documented here https://www.balena.io/docs/learn/develop/multicontainer/#named-volumes
How you go about backing up your database will depend on which database you are using and how you’ve architected your application. For example, if you are using a postgreSQL database, you could run a cron job in one of your application containers to periodically take a database backup and store it on Amazon S3.
ok got it thanks
