Kubernetes Storage Backup Discussion

I would be interested to know how you back up your storage and what tools you use.

In our development environment we use a NFS which is backed up via a cronjob every 4 hours.
MySQL and MongoDB are also backed up.

In the live environment we don't use NFS for many reasons.
Here I ask myself how I can backup the single read write volumes.
I have thought of it this way until now: I shut down the deployment with a cronjob, then mount the storage into a backup image, when that is done the deployment is started again.

How do you do that?

I'm working in a Big company ( more than 100k employees) where downtime is not an option.

Web use GlusterFs snapshots to do backups and recovers.
