Kubernetes postgres backups

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/kubernetes

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • postgresql-backup-s3

    Backup PostgresSQL to S3 (supports periodic backups)

  • velero

    Backup and migrate Kubernetes applications and their persistent volumes

    For Kubernetes-land, https://velero.io/ is awesome - but I haven't used it for online-database backups yet. If you're exploring, I'd checkout Velero - if you just need something to work reliably, I'd checkout Percona.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • pgBackRest

    Reliable PostgreSQL Backup & Restore

    I haven't explored the territory in awhile but for bare-metal, you can't go wrong with Percona Distribution, which includes pgBackRest and a minimal web-ui. No one ever got fired for using Percona, etc.

  • cloudnative-pg

    CloudNativePG is a Kubernetes operator that covers the full lifecycle of a PostgreSQL database cluster with a primary/standby architecture, using native streaming replication

    We already had backup and recovery using object storage, but we are working to support VolumeSnapshots taking care to properly shut down the instance first! This awesome PR is laying the foundation for it, it's adding a subcommand to our kubectl plugin to manually perform a backup using VolumeSnapshots and adding support for restoring a Cluster from it, next step will be adding it to the ScheduledBackup/Backup resources too!
