I’m using both Docker and Home Assistant for a longer time, but I’m quite new here in Balena.
I’m very happy with the Balena platform, coz I had a lot of troubles with failing memory cards in my Raspberry P§s fleet, so spinning a new one is just a breeze.
Anyway, I’m trying to figure out how to make regular backups of my Home Assistant running on my RPi via Balena, but still don’t know what can be the best practice.
I just need to make regular backups somewhere (doesn’t matter where, like on the remote server, samba, cloud,., anything…). Like daily, weekly, keep some last X backups etc. But how to do it well?
I found this article but it seems to be a too bit complicated: Deploying Home Assistant with balena | by Tomás Migone | Medium
I was looking for some dedicated backup addons for HA but no luck.
When looking here: balena-homeassistant/docker-compose.yml at master · balenalabs-incubator/balena-homeassistant · GitHub
Maybe the easiest way is to add another container, mount this volume and make backups from this container?
Any ideas, best practices, or so? This is generally useful even for other balena projects…
Thanx for the help!
