Overview of TiDB Backup & Restore Architecture
As described in TiDB Backup & Restore Overview, TiDB supports backing up and restoring multiple types of cluster data. You can use Backup & Restore (BR) and TiDB Operator to access these features, and create tasks to back up data from TiKV nodes or restore data to TiKV nodes.
For details about the architecture of each backup and restore feature, see the following documents:
