PostgreSQL Backup Strategies

Rumor has it all these other users and companies do this thing called "backup" on their database. And people keep saying it's a good idea. But what does it actually mean?

In this talk we'll go through the different options we have for PostgreSQL backups, how to use them and some good tips and best practices for setting up a backup strategy that actually works when disaster strikes.
