hi @Bill_R ! Welcome to our community! :hugs:

All cluster running in our Cloud are automatically backed up.

You don’t need to worry about it. We got you covered :slight_smile:

Let me know if this helps!


Thanks Duda, It is nice that the cloud content is automatically backed up.
We need a way to archive the data outside of Weaviate so that we
can support tutorials for example that others can run through using their own cluster. That requires the importing step as well of course. The datasets are not going to be large. We require them to be versioned in our own source code world too.

Hi Bill!

Understood. On that case, The best option is to have a script to import and export that dataset, where you can version the export.

By default, we do not expose those backups outside. You can call the backup command, and a new backup is generated.

Also, you can remove all your collections and then restore. But there isn’t a way, as of now, to download your backup from our cloud service.

Let me know if this helps!
