External database backup: fair enough?


In case :

  • we use external database (PostgreSQL)
  • storage is set to DB
  • database is already backup by cloud provider

Do we need to backup filesystem ?

In others words, if we use external database and storage is set to DB, can we consider Zammad pod (Helm deployment) is stateless ? (in that case it could be deployed as a Deployment)

I would like to avoid setting up another backup system if the database backup is already good enough.


That’s not a question anyone here can answer for you.
Check the TOS of your cloud provider.

Usually, even through providers claim to create backups, they also have a clause in their TOS that tells you “backup or you’re sorry in case of a loss”.

I personally would always opt for being safe instead of sorry.
