Elasticsearch 7.x Backup — “Snapshot & Restore” on AWS S3

In 2016 I wrote an Article about Elasticsearch Backup, it had and still has quite good interests from people. I decided to start a new series of articles with the Backup topic as the main argument.

The old article covered Snapshot & Restore functionalities based on Elasticsearch 2.4.x and the upcoming version, the 5.0. As it was 4 years ago I choose to refresh this tutorial and making it the first of a series of more.

I will prepare a small article on how to use the snapshot & restore functionality with different cloud-provider. This article is based on Elasticsearch 7.x, it doesn’t mean it couldn’t work on older versions but I focused on the latest one.

Elasticsearch Snapshot & Restore

Elasticsearch has a smart solution to backup single indices or entire clusters to remote shared filesystem or S3 or HDFS. The snapshot ES creates does not so resource consuming and is relatively small.

The idea behind these snapshots is that they are not “archive” in a strict sense, these snapshots can only be read by a version of Elasticsearch that is capable to read the index version stored inside the snapshot.

So you can follow this quick scheme if you want to restore ES snapshots :

  • A snapshot of an index created in 6.x can be restored to 7.x.
  • A snapshot of an index created in 5.x can be restored to 6.x.
  • A snapshot of an index created in 2.x can be restored to 5.x.
  • A snapshot of an index created in 1.x can be restored to 2.x.

Snapshots of indices created with ES 1.x cannot be restored to 5.x or 6.x, snapshots of indices created in 2.x cannot be restored to 6.x or 7.x, and snapshots of indices created in 5.x cannot be restored to 7.x or 8.x.

Split Native Databases Backup and Restore for AWS RDS SQL Server

In this article, we will explore how to split native backup and restore for AWS RDS SQL Server from the AWS S3 bucket.

Introduction

We can deploy SQL Server in Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud infrastructure using the following ways.

  • AWS Managed RDS SQL Server
  • Customer Managed SQL Server

In the below table, we can see a high-level comparison between EC2 and RDS SQL.

AWS Cost Allocation Tags and Cost Reduction

Bob had just arrived in the office for his first day of work as the newly hired chief technical officer when he was called into a conference room by the president, Martha, who immediately introduced him to the head of accounting, Amanda. They exchanged pleasantries, and then Martha got right down to business:

“Bob, we have several teams here developing software applications on Amazon and our bill is very high. We think it’s unnecessarily high, and we’d like you to look into it and bring it under control.”

Martha placed a screenshot of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) billing report on the table and pointed to it.

“This is a problem for us: We don’t know what we’re spending this money on, and we need to see more detail.”

Amanda chimed in, “Bob, look, we have financial dimensions that we use for reporting purposes, and I can provide you with some guidance regarding some information we’d really like to see such that the reports that are ultimately produced mirror these dimensions — if you can do this, it would really help us internally.”

“Bob, we can’t stress how important this is right now. These projects are becoming very expensive for our business,” Martha reiterated.

“How many projects do we have?” Bob inquired.

“We have four projects in total: two in the aviation division and two in the energy division. If it matters, the aviation division has 75 developers and the energy division has 25 developers,” the CEO responded.

Bob understood the problem and responded, “I’ll see what I can do and have some ideas. I might not be able to give you retrospective insight, but going forward, we should be able to get a better idea of what’s going on and start to bring the cost down.”

The meeting ended with Bob heading to find his desk. Cost allocation tags should help us, he thought to himself as he looked for someone who might know where his office is.
