EnterpriseDB Releases New Tool to Simplify DBA Disaster Recovery Tasks for Postgres

EnterpriseDB, a provider of enterprise-class Postgres products and database compatibility solutions, today introduced Enterprise DB (EDB) Backup and Recovery Tool (BART), a single tool to set up, manage and automate processes for backup and recovery.

The new product is intended to replace the series of complex steps and coding that Postgres users have had to deploy in order to ensure databases back up on schedule, and can be rebuilt.

In addition to EDB BART, EngterpriseDB has developed and rolled out tools for monitoring and alert management, single- and multi-master replication, automated failover, protection against SQL injection attacks, database migrations and automated updates.

“Our tools represent the most comprehensive and advanced set of solutions for today’s enterprise Postgres user,” said Marc Linster, Senior Vice President, Products and Services at EnterpriseDB. “As Postgres deployments expand in size and across more end users, demand rises for easy-to-use tools that address a range of complex management and security requirements. Working closely with end users, we have introduced tools to address these needs, and we continue to enhance our solutions as other needs evolve.”

Support for both Open Source PostgreSQL and EDB’s Postgres Plus Advanced Server

EDB BART supports both open source PostgreSQL and EDB’s Postgres Plus Advanced Server, and integrates with existing backup and recovery processes enterprises typically have in place. Key features include a Backup and Recovery Manager Catalog that enables users to manage a catalog of the local and remote Postgres servers involved in backup and recovery; a Command Line Interfac that gives users options to execute backup, restore and management operations and can be integrated into existing scheduled backups; Hot Physical Backups to enable the database to back up without having to shut down; and Point-in-Time-Recovery, providing the ability to roll forward from a point of last database backup.
