Please join David Murphy, Mongo Practice Manager, as he presents "MongoDB Backups, All Grown Up!".
It has been a long road to stable and dependable backups in the MongoDB space. We will go over the current types of backups and their limitations when it comes to sharding. From there we will move into why you can't be consistent with a single node, and how you can take sharded or unsharded consistent backups.
We will also talk more about the "mongodb_consistent_backup.py" tool, and what features it offers to the open source community: how to use it, what it looks like and why it's our preferred backup methodology.
