It's true that you can make stateless systems without DevOps tooling and approaches. But the nature and assumptions of those systems is that you cannot. Just letting arbitrary logins (even of administrators) can undermine that. One of the beauties of the pure DevOps model is the lack of logins. Much like functional programming.
Only time and money, need in a business is always a function of money.
I mean all of them combine.
You are correct.
Need dictates the other two.
Well, the other two dictate need. Businesses aren't a "need" based thing. They have a goal: profits. Backup restore time is a discussion about time. So the technical piece gives us the time axis and that we are talking about a business gives us a cost one. That's it. The idea of "need" should never really come up in a business, businesses never need to do anything. They desire profits and all actions should reflect that. The concept of needs only serves to confuse people from the singular mission.
Not exactly a Legion event, but we'll be at O'Fallon Brewery this evening from 6-9:30 with Barracuda. Feel free to stop in for a brew or two and learn a bit. I'll be talking community with attendees on the sidelines.
Tesla has donated two cars for test driving, although you would be a passenger along with a weekend Tesla giveaway!
So I found a quirk, not sure if it's an actual bug. For incremental backups to work you have to use the NFS syntax (BACKUP_URL="nfs://<server>"). If you mount the share, and then write to the local mount it won't do incremental.
I shared this with my parent company and they did an evaluation, but found that its not really useful for them. Initial feedback was " the application supports files only - no other objects (list items, etc.)"
So circling back to this, I was determined to add an SMB remote backup share. Instead of adding a remote SMB backup share through XO, I just mounted the SMB share through Ubuntu where XO is installed. In this case, I mounted to /Backups. Then setup a "local" remote in XO that points to /Backups. Backups are now running and being stored on a remote computer.
