Can I backup to Google S3 storage from one cluster and copy to another cluster in another namespace?

If I have done a backup in one cluster and then the pxc pods failed, so I need to restore and want to restore in another cluster, can I do that?

@saloni24 Absolutely. Use xtrabackup to stream the backup to S3 using xbcloud. There are many examples in the documentation.

If you created a separate volume for your MySQL datadir, you can also explore scheduled snapshots and use a snapshot to recreate a volume on a new node.


It seems since 1.6.0 version of the operator, the restore.yaml has a backupSource parameter, which helps with this, also, thank you so much for your response!
