Backups for data.gov.uk

Local backups

Backups of the local PostgreSQL database are made every day and stored in /media/hulk/backup on the server. The last few daily backups are kept, after which the retention period decreases to one backup per month.

Bytemark backups

As part of their managed service, Bytemark takes daily offsite backups of the whole server, which are kept for 7 days, after which time the last 4 monthly backups are kept.

Access to these backups is via a Bytemark support ticket. Contact the Platform Health team who have named contacts set up with Bytemark for support requests.
