Point in time restore

Hi All,

One query which I couldn’t figure out is follows…

Is there any option of Point in Time recovery on Couchbase.

If there is any disaster at 10th minute post to my last periodic backup, only solution I see is to restore from latest backup snapshot, but how about the last 10 minutes data which is not part of last snapshot ?

Am I loosing it completely or Is there any option to restore that as well ?



As far as I know, Point-in-time recovery is not fully supported yet and it is planned to be released soon, but you can still rollback to a specific day using the parameter --to-date (https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/server/current/cli/cbrestore-tool.html#cdbrestore-tool)

You can also use XDCR to create a hot standby cluster and redirect the traffic to it in case something bad happens.

This post is a year old and I’m wondering if there has been any progress with Point-in-Time recovery?

any progress on this … @deniswsrosa

Hi Deni,
can you update on this ?

looks like tentatively by 2020 they get this in production. As of this feature is not in existence.

Its disappointing to see PIT recovery feature is not yet introduced, even with version 6.5.

Hi All,

Point in time for couchbase is possible if you are using third party tools like Talena for backup of couchbase.
