Pivotal Container Service v1.3

Backing up and Restoring PKS

Page last updated:

This section describes how to back up and restore the Pivotal Container Service (PKS) control plane and single-master PKS clusters. PKS uses the Cloud Foundry BOSH Backup and Restore framework to back up and restore the PKS control plane and single-master clusters.

BBR backs up the following PKS control plane components:

  • UAA MySQL database
  • PKS API MySQL database

BBR backs up the following single-master cluster components:

  • Etcd database

BBR orchestrates triggering the backup or restore process on the BOSH deployment, and transfers the backup artifacts to and from the BOSH deployment.

For more information about installing and using BBR, see the following topics:
