2ndQuadrant is proud to announce the release of Barman version 1.6.1, a Backup and Recovery Manager for PostgreSQL. This minor release consolidates its central role in business continuity installations of PostgreSQL databases and now allows users to implement parallel remote restore commands on standby servers and during recovery.
Through the new ‘replication-status’ command, Barman becomes a very practical tool for monitoring streaming replication status of every managed server.
Barman (Backup and Recovery Manager) is an open source administration tool for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers written in Python. It allows your organisation to perform remote backups of multiple servers in business critical environments and help DBAs during the recovery phase. Barman’s most requested features include backup catalogues, incremental backup, retention policies, remote backup and recovery, archiving and compression of WAL files and backups. Barman is distributed under GNU GPL 3.
