Restic in Production


#1

I’m looking to replace CloudBerry because it is completely unreliable for Linux server backups… and Restic seems like the best alternative for our needs.

It hasn’t hit a 1.0 release. Is it considered production ready?

Thanks,

Brian

I would say it is. I use it and trust it for a bunch of clients, including those that for some reason trust me with their data :slight_smile:


#3

Yeah, it probably is. We wrote Relica on top of restic because we figure it’s stable enough for most use cases!


#4

We’ve been using it for a month in production and it manages TBs of backups (logically – the repo itself is <1TB due to deduplication). We’ve not had a restore fail yet.
