Hi, I’m running Mongo Community Server for a start-up project on a single linux instance (nodeJS) and looking into back-up options. Ideally, I do not want any loss of data as I’m working with an Auction site. I doubt if usage will be high in the short term so looking at a simple solution for the moment.
Though I can use mongodump to back-up the data every hour, there is a period where no back-up is made. Does mongo write to a temporary file? If yes, I could use this to restore the full data. Is this possible?
The other option I came across was ‘Ops Manager’ which I think provides a continuous back-up, which sounds to be the best option. But I read its only available for MongoDB Enterprise Advanced subscription.
Any suggestions on how I can achieve my goal, or at least to the nearest point?
