I have a question regarding backup and the scenario where I have an operational RapidMiner Server. Let's say we have a busy data science team and dozens of projects are running in production. All these projects are solving various predictive tasks that are used for process control in a huge manufacturing system. As huge manufacturing systems tend to do, this is operated 24/7 to make most out of the capital that is bound in the machines.
The documentation states: Simply switch it of to avoid inconsistent backups.
Okay. So I switch off my manufacturing plant, too? Entirely? While most of the employees migth be on my side to take a day off per week, I doubt the mangement will follow me.
So what strategies are left? How can we externally synchronize the file system and the database? Or is there an alternative approach to it that I miss?`
Hope for your ideas!
PS: Yes, this is a feature request. Something like RM Repository should be transaction save AND have live backup capabilities.
