Protect your PostgreSQL and Postgres Plus databases on Linux and Solaris without impacting users and applications

The Zmanda Postgres Agent delivers fast and reliable solution to protect your PostgreSQL and Postgres Plus databases running on Linux and Solaris servers. Administrators can choose to do an incremental or full backup and perform all backup operations while users and applications continue to access the Postgres databases. Zmanda Postgres Agent takes advantage of advanced backup technologies built into Postgres. System administrators can now easily setup backup schedule and policies for multiple Postgres databases from one GUI, without having to learn about internals of Postgres backup techniques and writing complex scripts.

The Zmanda Postgres Linux and Solaris agents are fully integrated with the Postgres write ahead log (WAL) to provide point-in-time recovery (PITR). A central management console and an intelligent scheduler enable administrators to do fully-automated Postgres database backups.

  • Online backup. Backup all Postgres databases on Linux and Solaris to a central backup server without impacting users and applications.
  • Rapid restore. Databases are restored from media simply and quickly using an intuitive, point-and-click interface.
  • Flexible backup levels. Supports both full and incremental backup levels.
  • Standard encryption. Administrators can choose which data to encrypt, which standard encryption algorithm to use, and whether to encrypt data on the client or on the server.
  • Standard compression. Uses only industry standard compression utilities, and allows administrator to choose the optimal compression algorithm for the data and the resources available, as well as whether to compress the data on the client or the server.
  • Flexible media option. You can choose to store your backup files and databases on tape, disk, online storage, or optical storage devices. You even have the option to backup your Postgres databases to storage clouds, e.g. Amazon’s Simple Secure Storage Service (Amazon S3)
  • Release support. Support for PostgreSQL 8.x, 9.x and Postgres Plus 8.3 on Linux and Solaris.
  • Backup server. Requires Amanda Enterprise on Linux or Solaris backup server.
