When will PSMDB physical backups become stable?

Documentation states:

Also, logical backups are stable, while physical backups are available since the Operator version 1.14.0 and still have the technical preview stauts .


  • I assume this means physical backup is still under testing + development and not usable for production. Correct?

  • When will physical backups become stable? Any timeline?

Hello @Markus ,

  1. You are correct, it is in tech preview, we do not recommend using it in production.
  2. It has high chances of going GA in the next release. We and our community found a couple of bugs that were fixed in the previous release. For now we do not see major issues.

If you have found any bugs - please let us know.
