In this talk, I'm going to highlight technologies, tricks, and hacks that make PostgreSQL backup faster. These technologies will be presented from a cloud perspective: high availability, data safety guarantees, disclosure prevention, cost reduction, database throughput maximization, operational safety – everything we like. Most of this knowledge was extracted during development features for WAL-G and introducing WAL-G into the production of one of the biggest PostgreSQL installations in Europe.

WAL-G is simple and effective disaster recovery tool for PostgreSQL using cloud storages. In its core functionality, WAL-G is the successor of WAL-E written in Go. I'm going to talk about existing features and about possible future prospects of the PostgreSQL backup API as I see it.
