What is a PostgreSQL Backup Service?
A PostgreSQL backup service is an essential tool for a well-running company to protect their data.

A service will automate the process and report the issues back.
What is a PostgreSQL backup tool?
A PostgreSQL backup tool is a software application that you can manually run your backup your database; think of pg_dump used to extract the database into a SQL file you can run to recreate the database a service automates and manages the process for you.
Why use a PostgreSQL Backup Service
Utilizing a PostgreSQL backup service helps to protect your vital databases from data loss. Various issues can result in data loss, such as accidental deletion, cyberattacks, or server crashes. A PostgreSQL backup service mitigates these risks by allowing a third-party, such as BackupSheep, to handle your backups and store them offsite.
Why backup PostgreSQL Offsite?
Offsite backup of PostgreSQL databases is vital for eliminating risks associated with potential compromises at the source location. This could be due to hacker intrusion, fires at the data center, or disk corruption. An offsite backup provides an extra layer of security and allows you to restore your data with a second provider if your current one encounters issues.
Who pays for storage?
With BackupSheep, you use your personal cloud storage account. Therefore, you would be responsible for any associated fees with the external storage provider you use, such as S3-compatible storage, Dropbox, Google Drive, or Azure.
How does BackupSheep backup PostgreSQL databases?
BackupSheep uses the pg_dump command to create, manage, and update PostgreSQL databases. Its automated tools allow you to easily locate the necessary files and set up the backup in a short amount of time.
Can BackupSheep allow backup for my clients?
Yes, BackupSheep allows you to manage backups that are easily accessible for your clients.
What are the other things that we can backup with BackupSheep?
In addition to PostgreSQL, BackupSheep can also be utilized for backing up MongoDB, PostgreSQL, and server files.
Can BackupSheep keep separate files?
Yes, BackupSheep allows the creation of separate files, whether you want a single dump file or if you prefer each database to have its own backup. With BackupSheep's PostgreSQL backup tool, you can customize this according to your needs.
