Back Up Cassandra Data

You can back up an entire Cassandra instance or individual keyspaces.

You can run backups immediately or configure a schedule for the subclient.

Full Backups

Cassandra full backups include the entire instance. A full backup is the most comprehensive backup and is the baseline for incremental backups.

Incremental Backups

A Cassandra incremental backup contains the changed data from the last full backup. Incremental backups use less media and resources than full backups.

In a cumulative level n backup, only the data that differs from the most recent backup at level n-1 or lower, is backed up.

What is Backed Up

The backups include all the keyspaces from all the nodes that are in the Cassandra cluster.

Commvault only backs up the Cassandra user-defined data types.
