April 2013 | Open Source

Packt is proud to announce the publication of Instant PostgreSQL Backup and Restore How-to, a step-by-step guide to backing up and restoring databases using safe, efficient, and proven recipes. It’s a fast, focused, and effective guide to achieving instant results. The book is out and available in popular e-book formats, such as Amazon Kindle, ePub and PDF.

About the author: Shaun M. Thomas is a long time database administrator, and has been working with PostgreSQL since late 2000. Over the years, he has contributed frequently to the PostgreSQL Performance mailing list to help other DBAs get the most out of his favorite database. In 2011 and 2012, at the PostgreSQL Open conference, he presented topics such as handling extreme throughput, high availability, server redundancy, and failover techniques.

Backing up a database is something that all system admins must eventually face. Larger warehouses and critical enterprise data requires advanced techniques and tools to handle this complex data. PostgreSQL provides the basic tools for accomplishing this complex task. PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source, object-relational database system. This book is filled with practical, step-by-step instructions and clear explanations for the most important and useful tasks. Instant PostgreSQL Backup and Restore How-to provides a quick and easy way to back up and restore your database using PostgreSQL.

The book starts by backing up a simplistic database and learning how to restore it to working order; it then moves on to more complex backup techniques including creating and restoring binary backups. Readers will learn how to drastically reduce restore time using parallel SQL. Covering advanced topics such as warm and hot standby restore and streaming replication, Instant PostgreSQL Backup and Restore How-to gives readers the power to make complete backups which guarantees that they will always be able to restore their database to full working order.

Complementing this title, Packt has already released and is due to publish the following PostgreSQL-related books:

PostgreSQL 9.0 High Performance (October 2010)

PostgreSQL 9 Admin Cookbook (October 2013)

PostgreSQL Starter (expected)

Database administrators who want to create backups of their critical enterprise data and efficiently restore it using PostgreSQL will find this book very beneficial. For more information about the book visit the Packt book web page.
