There have been many different ways to take backups of PostgreSQL systems over the years, and the tools to do so have evolved both inside PostgreSQL and as addons. Are you using pg_dump for backups? Calling pg_start_backup()? Writing an archive_command? Then you're probably missing out on new features, and possibly even risking your backups. In this talk we'll go through the "right" way to do backups on modern versions of PostgreSQL, both using builtin tools and proven external utilities.
