Description David Moreau Simard 2017-11-14 14:13:36 UTC
I suspect it would be hard to back up the actual OpenShift instance (mix of blob storage, etcd, containers, etc.).

What is valuable is really the container images themselves -- the registry can be reinstalled from scratch within 30 minutes if need be.

We could have a small (regular? or openshift?) registry backup instance offsite where we would mirror specifically tagged images (current-tripleo/current-tripleo-rdo).

Skopeo, for example [1] has a feature to easily copy images from a registry to the other.
We should discuss the implementation so that it's as low maintenance as possible.

Hmm.. I'm not sure to what extent we need to handle the backups ourselves actually.

We could simply mirror ourselves to DockerHub and fall back to DockerHub in case of outage.

We could push images like described here [1].
