Updated: Become a ClusterControl DBA: Safeguarding your Data

So now that you have your databases up and running and highly available, how do you ensure that you have backups of your data? You can use backups for multiple things: disaster recovery, to provide production data to test against development or even to provision a slave node. This last case is already covered by ClusterControl. When you add a new (replica) node to your replication setup, ClusterControl will make a backup/snapshot of the master node and use it to build the replica.
