2ndQuadrant announces the release of Barman 1.1.1. This minor version fixes a small bug with the “barman recover” command, introduced with version 1.1.0. Barman users are encouraged to update their systems to this version, which can be downloaded from Sourceforge.net.
Version 1.1.0 is the second release of Barman. Debian/Ubuntu packages are now available as well.
On the dawn of the release of version 1.1.0 of Barman, we are proud to publish our first video/spot for the promotion of our open source tool. The goal of the video is to emphasize the importance of physical hot backups and disaster recovery solutions for PostgreSQL databases operating in business critical environments. One of […]

As my French colleague Dimitri Fontaine was pointing out a few days ago, PostgreSQL 9.2 is out. This is another great release for PostgreSQL, but we are already ahead in the development of the next release: PostgreSQL 9.3. The Italian team of 2ndQuadrant has been working since last year on adding a new feature to […]
To create a standby in PostgreSQL is relatively easy, and because of the hot standby feature, that alone is certainly very useful. But creating a useful cluster that gives us real HA… that’s another story. The complexities added by failure detection, STONITH rules and choosing a new master could be overwhelming. But still, it is […]
The sixth edition of the Italian PGDay will be held in Prato on November 23 in the historical location of the Monash University Centre. The call for papers has officially been opened today. International speakers are most welcome.
Barman, backup and recovery manager for PostgreSQL, is designed to manage the archive of WAL files separately from periodical backups (in Postgres terms, base backups).
