A comparison of PostgreSQL backup tools

Date: 2022-10-27
Time: 09:30–10:20
Room: Berlin 1
Level: Intermediate

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.
