Posted on 2013-07-02 by Novosoft LLC

Novosoft LLC, one of the leading providers of backup solutions for home and corporate users, has launched an add-on for their popular software Handy Backup. The new plug-in helps to back up PostgreSQL databases in a simple and convenient way.

"PostgreSQL is one of the fastest, most widely used, and reliable free database management systems. It satisfies the requirements of all kinds of consumers: it’s popular among individual programmers and is also used by large corporations. To meet market’s need of information safety, we have implemented advanced support for PostgreSQL backup in Handy Backup. Our new solution is one of the most reliable ways to perform PostgreSQL backup and, I hope, will be appreciated by users,” – said Aleksey Dolgushev, Head of Handy Backup Business Development Department.

PostgreSQL functionality is included in business editions of Handy Backup (Small Server and Network Server) and can be added to other versions through a purchase of a respective plug-in.

The program lets users back up PostgreSQL tables located on both local and remote computers without stopping them due to the Hot Backup technology.

The plug-in presents the smart scheduler that allows setting up program only once to run backup and restore tasks automatically on a minute to monthly basis. The software can be launched as Windows service and will perform backups on time even if a user is not logged on.

Handy Backup provides assured protection for backups: all copies can be saved with advanced encryption and can be protected by password.

PostgreSQL backups could be saved to hard drives, local and remote servers including FTP/SFTP/FTPS servers, WebDav storage, and popular cloud storages such as Amazon S3, Google Drive and others. All copies could be saved with ZIP-compression to minimize required storing space.

Handy Backup is claimed to be one of the market’s most effective solutions for PostgreSQL backup with a broad range of useful features.
