BOSH and GCP make it incredibly easy to bring up vast arrays of production systems - Cloud Foundry, Kubo, monitoring systems, data services, and more. Unfortunately, you might not have a homogenous way to immediately commence backups of all data on all systems. A system is only a "production system" when operators know how to restore it after a disaster.

Fortunately, SHIELD is an open source standalone system that can perform backup and restore functions for a wide variety of pluggable data systems. SHIELD can be deployed with BOSH, and integrated to backup/restore both BOSH deployments and BOSH director itself. It has also been integrated with various Chef Habitat plans to provide backup/restore out of the box.

One of the pluggable storage systems is GCP's own object store.
