Disaster Recovery Process

Backup & restore process.

Two major procedures should exist in order to recover lost data:

  • Creating backups continuously

  • Restoring the backups

This includes the different databases: MongoDB, PostgreSQL DB and Elasticsearch.

The current implementation will create continuous backups for MongoDB (to backup all the transactions of OpenHIM) and PostgreSQL (to backup the HAPI FHIR data) as follows:

  • Daily backups (for 7 days rotation)

  • Weekly backups (for 4 weeks rotation)

  • Monthly backups (for 3 months rotation)
