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