Video - Resetting staging with 30Gb of production data and new schema

To continue with general LARGE file theme this weekend I did a video walking through a deployment for resetting a staging server with 30 gb of production data

The flow we go through look this.

This is a useful pattern, because we don’t need to pull fresh data from production, which can be disruptive every time we want to refresh staging. We “offload” the data to a web server where it can be fetched when ever it is needed.

The video is quite long as there is a lot of data transfer, and data migration happening. From about 8:00 to about 38:45 minutes, it is pretty quiet as OttoFMS is just working its way through the tasks that OttoDeploy gave it to do.
