Hello everyone, We are running cassandra cluster inside containers over Kubernetes. We have a requirement where we need to restore a fresh new cluster with existing snapshot on weekly basis.
Currently, while doing it manually. i need to copy the snapshot folder inside container and then run sstableloader utility to load those tables. Since the source and destination cluster size is equal, I was thinking if there are some easy way to just copy and paste the complete data directory by mapping the nodes one to one. Since i wasn't able to find documentation around other backup restoration methods apart from nodetool snapshot and sstableloader, I haven't explored much. I recently came across this project - https://github.com/Netflix/Priam but tried it yet. Would be very happy if i can get some ideas around various ways of backup/restoration while running inside containers. Thank you
