Disaster recovery Recommendation

Do you recommend to have DR setup for jenkins Prod and sync together?

Would it be good practice to utilize license, executer and private agents redundantly ?

    I don't think we have any articles on this. I've seen some success with CloudBees CI for modern platforms on Kubernetes using Velero to do the data replication.


    If you are running a standaloine Jenkins, it's probably most economical to just back Jenkins up to S3 and have some kind of restoration process to the DR environment.


    But if you expect this to work, you need to test it. The successful deployments I've seen will do a DR failover to the other environment every other week. They use the DR feature for testing upgrades, for example. If you force yourself to do this every other week, you will end up automating it.
