Thanks to the new utilities barman-cloud-restore and barman-cloud-wal-restore introduced in Barman 2.11, it is now possible to execute the recovery of a PostgreSQL instance using a full backup previously executed using barman-cloud-wal-archive and barman-cloud-backup commands. Let’s discover together how to implement this in the following article.
In the first part of this blog, Jonathan explained how the barman-wal-archive command works. Now, assuming you followed those instructions, you have a properly configured PostgreSQL instance up and running. In this second part, I will show you how the barman-cloud-backup command works.
Preamble How many current Barman users have thought about saving backups in a remote destination in the cloud? How many have thought about taking that backup directly from the PostgreSQL server itself? Well, since Barman 2.10 this is now possible! How? Let’s discover that together in the following articles.
I’ve started to write about the tool (pglupgrade) that I developed to perform near-zero downtime automated upgrades of PostgreSQL clusters. In this post, I’ll be talking about the tool and discuss its design details. You can check the first part of the series here: Near-Zero Downtime Automated Upgrades of PostgreSQL Clusters in Cloud (Part I). The tool is […]
Last week, I was at Nordic PGDay 2018 and I had quite a few conversations about the tool that I wrote, namely pglupgrade, to automate PostgreSQL major version upgrades in a replication cluster setup. I was quite happy that it has been heard and some other people in different communities giving talks at meetups and other […]
As you may have noted from my previous blog, the last few months were busy in getting Postgres-XL up-to-date with the latest 9.5 release of PostgreSQL. Once we had a reasonably stable version of Postgres-XL 9.5, we shifted our attention to measure performance of this brand new version of Postgres-XL. Our choice of the benchmark […]
Ansible is simply great and PostgreSQL is surely awesome, let’s see how they work amazingly together!
