MariaDB supports both automatic and manual backups. Automatic backups are created in either of the following instances:

  • During the creation of a cluster.

  • Upon upgrading the current version of MariaDB to a higher version.

  • When a Point-In-Time-Recovery operation is conducted.

Note: IONOS maintains backups for the last seven days so that you can recover them for up to a week.

Automatic backups

IONOS, by default, performs automatic backups, which are full backups that run regularly at a specific hour based on the value set in the DBaaS component.

Manual backup

IONOS facilitates the "logical" backup option using mariadb-dump. Alternatively, you can also use the mariadb-dump client to back data to a different location. For more information, refer to the MariaDB Documentation.
