Using Schedules and Restore-Only Mode
If you periodically back up your cluster’s resources, you are able to return to a previous state in case of some unexpected mishap, such as a service outage. Doing so with Heptio Ark looks like the following:

ark schedule create <SCHEDULE NAME> --schedule "0 7 * * *"

ark restore create --from-backup <SCHEDULE NAME>-<TIMESTAMP>
