What is the recommended backup strategy for larger storage requirements (10TB+)?

Here are some points to consider:

  • Filestore size should be able to account for future growth and for an amount of space to account for temporary work, such as expanding archive deployments
  • In Admin -> Advanced -> Maintenance you can see the cron for your Garbage Collection task  which should be at a different time than your IT level backup and Artifactory backup
  • Also in Admin -> Advanced -> Maintenance you will find the setting for Quota Management which will give warnings when filestore space becomes a concern
  • The Artifactory installation should have about 100 GB free for logs and temporary work
  • If an Artifactory style backup is still desired, it should be stored on a different disk than the NFS filestore or Artifactory installation and should be using the “Incremental” setting. It should also only contain a select few local repositories that contain staged or release level artifacts
