Barman
======

Barman's most wanted features include backup catalogues, retention
policies, remote recovery, archiving and compression of WAL files and
backups.

Built on top of PostgreSQL's robust and reliable Point-In-Time-Recovery 
technology, Barman allows database administrators to manage the backup 
and recovery phases of several PostgreSQL database servers from a 
centralised location, using an intuitive command interface.

"We are developing more and more projects with Open Source
technologies and one of the challenges is to find high quality
solutions for our services" - says Marco Betti, Architecture Engineer
at CSI Piemonte - "We found in Barman the optimal solution for
physical backup and disaster recovery of PostgreSQL databases. Barman
is robust and easy to use. Its command interface allows an easy
integration with the existing management tools in our enviroment".

Laura Passigni of Navionics, the leading company in electronic charts,
says that "Barman is an easy to use, yet effective solution, the
perfect companion for the migration of our database from Oracle to
PostgreSQL".

Version 1.0 of Barman includes:

* Remote hot physical backup of multiple PostgreSQL servers
* Management of base backups and WAL files through a catalogue
* Compression of WAL files (bzip2, gzip or custom)
* Point-In-Time-Recovery (PITR)
* Remote and local recovery of a backup for a PostgreSQL server
* Relocation of PGDATA and tablespaces at recovery time
* "ssh" support for remote operations
* "rsync" over "ssh" support for file synchronisation and transfers
* Server status and information
* Integration with standard archiving tools (e.g. "tar")
* Local storage of metadata
* A simple INI configuration file
* Server diagnostics for backup
