• How to improve the restore performance in PostgreSQL

    For our restore performance in PostgreSQL, we used pg_dump with the default plain format (which worked okay). But then we started to get time / space improvements when using pg_dump -Fc | gzip -9 -c > However, when we tried to create the database anew, the restore took almost half a day to...

  • Backup and replicate SQL Server database

    We have a SQL Server database that contains our most recent data. We need to replicate the content into several other servers. But for some reason, we can't use the replicate / sync function to sync to other SQL Server instances. What would be the best way to do this? Thank you!

  • Handle MySQL backups with Git

    For our MySQL backup, we came up with a pretty good idea but we're not entirely sure. To backup it up, we thought of putting the dump file into a Git repository, and the commit on each dump so we have the most recent copy / we can roll back to a previous backup. But we're not sure of the flaws...

    For our code (among other things), we use source-code control to manage different versions and it also provides some backup. But we noticed that the local copy is out of sync with the repository sometimes. Does anyone know of a good backup strategy do keep our code safe?

    What would be the best backup option for us in SQL Server 2008 Express? Our first thought was to do a replication on another computer / take Xcopy backups of the server but it's not available in Express. There can be no downtime either. What should we do?

    Our MySQL backup strategy is to replicate our database to a second server and then run mysqldump on that server to get rid of any downtime from table locking. It's working great but the cost is huge (Over $150 per month on that second server). Anyone know of another way to do MySQL backups cheaper?...

  • Should we use Duplicity as our backup strategy?

    Several clients have come to us to work on a few backup strategies. We've been leaning towards duplicity for the remote backup but we have a few questions that need answering. Is it really reasonable to do a full backup every so often? And is duplicity efficient enough to do a full backup?
