Excerpt of article text...

In the last column we began our discussion of Barman and very lightly touched on the topic of disaster recovery. In this column we are going to begin our preparatory work for installing and setting up Barman by setting up and configuring continuous archiving.

In next month's column we will actually test our continuous archiving by doing a point-in-time recovery (PITR).

As with my previous columns all the same caveats and encouragements apply:

  • An untested backup is no backup at all

  • Test your backups by doing actual restores

  • Do the appropriate thing for your environment(s). If you don't need this level of disaster recovery then by all means keep it simple.
