What are the best approaches to clone the stage from production instance on AEM 6.5

Avatar

Level 1

hi,

 

I have a requirement, where the stage instance is lagging behind the pre-prod and production environment in /content, assets, and config. We need to decide a way to clone the latest code, content. assets and config from the prod into the stage, for it to be as close to the latest on prod as possible. 

 

What are the best approaches? What are the things that need to be taken care of before considering doing this? 

 

Thanks,

Sam

Here is the way: Assets Migration Guide

There are two tools that are recommended for moving assets from one AEM instance to another:

  • Vault Remote Copy, or vlt rcp, allows you to use vlt across a network. You can specify a source and destination directory and vlt downloads all repository data from one instance and loads it into the other. Vlt rcp is documented at http://jackrabbit.apache.org/filevault/rcp.html.
  • Grabbit is an open-source content synchronization tool that was developed by Time Warner Cable for their AEM implementation. Because it uses continuous data streams, in comparison to vlt rcp, it has a lower latency and claims a speed improvement of two to ten times faster than vlt rcp. Grabbit also supports synchronization of delta content only, which allows it to sync changes after an initial migration pass has been completed.

In yesterday's Summit Session "Adobe Experience Manager as a Cloud Service: 2022 Top Innovations" [1] the feature "Content Backflow" was announced. That should address your requirement.
