DELETE FROM USERS; OMG! Where's the Where?! How to Use Postgres Recovery Tools

Have you ever accidentally deleted important data? Imagine a junior, or even not-so-junior, DBA drops an important table from what he thought was the development server, but was actually the production environment! Perhaps there is a code-bug that keeps chewing your data down the drain.

If you did your homework then you do not have to worry (or at least not worry too much.)

This presentation will teach you about the disaster recovery options available with Postgres. We will cover solutions from delayed replicas to Point-In-Time Recovery, showing different ways to recover to specific instances.

We will go over several disaster scenarios and see how backup and recover tools like 'barman' can help get your business back up and running.
