High Performance pgBackRest

pgBackRest is open source software developed to perform efficient backup on PostgreSQL databases that measure in tens or hundreds of terabytes and/or generate high WAL volume. pgBackRest supports a robust set of performance features, including: parallel backup/restore, delta restore, parallel asynchronous archiving, partial/failed backup resume, backup from standby, and more.

This talk by the primary maintainer will focus on:

  • Performance features of pgBackRest.
  • Practical configuration examples.
  • Parallel backup/restore and archiving implementations.

The attendee should gain a good understanding of which performance features are useful in a variety of circumstances.
