Distributed Point-In-Time Recovery with Postgres
Duration 45 min
Postgres has a nice feature called Point-in-time Recovery (PITR) that would allow you to go back in time. In this talk, we will discuss what are the use-cases of PITR, how to prepare your database for PITR by setting good base backup and WAL shipping setups, with some examples. We will expand the discussion with how to achieve PITR if you have a distributed and sharded Postgres setup by mentioning challenges such as clock differences and ways to overcome them, such as two-phase commit and pg_create_restore_point.
