A comparison of PostgreSQL backup tools
Room: Berlin 1
What is the best way to backup a PostgreSQL cluster?
The answer is, there is no-one perfect backup tool. However, unlike other database engines, a myriad of tools to choose from.
I'd like to do a comparison of the various backup tools from ease-of-use, what features each one has and how you can deploy them in various different environments.
So, the comparison would include BARMAN, WAL-G, pgbackrest, pg_basebackup and pg_dump. It would look at the merits and problems, to give a DBA or management team on the best options for their PG cluster.
