Elevating your confidence with the Elephant's restoration capabilities

Date: 2015-10-27
Time: 13:30–17:00
Room: Ballroom B
Level: Intermediate

This half day training will focus purely on the backup and restore of PostgreSQL. In this training you will learn the nuances of PostgreSQL's built in backup and restore capabilities as well as external abilities brought about by technologies such as snapshots and pgBackrest.

There will be instruction on pg_dump/all and restore including a full understanding of the different backup/restore formats, when to use them and how to reduce potential production issues running long backups.

Lastly, the students will be shown how to use pgBackrest, filesystem snapshots and other well known utilities to properly manage the Elephant's data.
