Back up and restore your cloud

Back up and restore your cloud

For disaster recovery purposes, it is a good practice to perform regular backups of the database, configuration files, network information, and OpenStack service details in your environment. For an OpenStack cloud deployed using OpenStack-Ansible, back up the /etc/openstack_deploy/ directory.

Back up and restore the /etc/openstack_deploy/ directory

The /etc/openstack_deploy/ directory contains a live inventory, host structure, network information, passwords, and options that are applied to the configuration files for each service in your OpenStack deployment. Back up the /etc/openstack_deploy/ directory to a remote location.

To restore the /etc/openstack_deploy/ directory, copy the backup of the directory to your cloud environment.

Database backups and recovery
