Except that you have to snapshot EVERYTHING...

If you get SYSTEM.CATALOG, SYSTEM.SEQUENCE and your table, and you want to restore your table, then you will also restore those 2 system tables might brake the other tables that you have not snapshot nor restored...

Is there a nice way of taking a backup of a Phoenix database?

Either just the schema, or schema plus data?
