Let’s say I have a system like a database built as an FDB layer, where data is organized into some keyspace. I’d like the layer to have the ability to trigger a FoundationDB backups (full snapshots, as well as continuous backups) to S3 on certain events (either user triggered – e.g. “backup table in database” – or automatic for system/global disaster recovery.)
At the moment, the backup tools are the only way to do this via the command line, but having an API actually exposed for this would be quite handy. Would some APIs to provide this explicitly be within scope and, if done properly, acceptable upstream?
