Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Current state of Postgres v. Oracle

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Don, so Postgres doesn't have anything like Oracle's RMAN utility. But, is there any way at all to do hot physical backups using archived redologs (the "write ahead log" for Postgres, I think) the way you can with Oracle? Or any word on when/if the Postgres folks plan to support that?

(RMAN makes doing hotbackups easier for Oracle, but it's not necessary - for example, Unix Backup & Recovery describes the script which does hot backups without using RMAN.)
