Shalabh Goyal(@goyalshalabh) joins us on this podcast to discuss sharded databases – and MongoDB and Cassandra in particular – and how one might go about backing them up. Suffice it to say that it is complicated. We learned a lot from recording this podcast and you will learn a lot listening to it!
Shalabh Goyal used to work at Datos.IO, where they focused on this kind of backup. As you will see in the podcast, you really have to back up these other databases in a very different way than you have before, or any restores will not go as you had intended.
