The PostgreSQL database backup tools are designed to simplify the database backup procedures of your PostgreSQL cluster(s); the backup administrator does not need to know the internals of PostgreSQL database backup strategies or write complex scripts.

The database backup tools automatically take care of backing up essential information such as configuration, user definitions and table spaces.

The PostgreSQL database backup tools support both “Dump” and Point In Time Recovery (PITR) database backup strategies. Using Bacula Systems’ unique Late Data Inclusion (LDI) technology, this tool effectively captures data up to the point of finishing the backup, therefore minimizing the risk of data loss. This is an industry-leading advantage over other vendors’ database backup solutions.
