Sidestepping Catastrophes with Vertica Backup and Recovery

Accidents do happen! Data can become corrupted. It can be unintentionally deleted and, in some rare cases, you can lose all your data.


Do you have a plan B to recover data in a timely manner?


Restoring Objects from a Full Backup

Before Vertica version 7.2, you had two options: perform full backups and restore full backups (remove everything from the storage unit) or perform object-level backups and restore those individually (maintain separate storage units). But as of Vertica 7.2, you can have the best of both worlds. You can perform full backups and restore individual objects from that backup! This means you don’t have to waste time and resources on restoring data that you do not need at the moment.
