Backups

This section describes the automated backup services that are provided to all Instaclustr-managed PostgreSQL clusters:

  • Snapshots
    Daily snapshots are taken and uploaded to cloud provider object storage
  • WAL archiving
    Before WAL files are recycled, a copy is uploaded to cloud provider object storage

Both backup services transfer backed up data to an external storage repository (e.g. an S3 storage bucket for an AWS cluster) with a retention period of 7 days.

Restoring from Backups

To restore from previously backed up data, please contact Instaclustr Support.
