Note that this is just for creating a couple of one-off backups to restore
for our dev and pre-prod environments. Given that, I was going to open a
new clone as its own cluster and take backups from that. The data would be
the same though and suit purposes of the dev and pre-prod refreshes.

If I were taking backups for the purpose of production backups, I would not
do things this way. That is the eventual plan but right now we aren't ready
to make the changes necessary in the production environment.
