Barman (backup and recovery manager) for PostgreSQL is an administration tool for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers. It allows remote backups of multiple servers in business-critical environments and helps DBAs during the recovery phase. Barman's most-wanted features include backup catalogs, retention policies, remote recovery, archiving, and compression of WAL files and backups.

Release Notes: This is a major release that introduces automated support for retention policies based on the redundancy of periodical backups or recovery window. Retention policies are integrated by a safety mechanism that allows administrators to specify a minimum number of periodical backups that must exist at any time for a server. This version fixes minor bugs and adds minor features.
Release Notes: This version adds the "configuration_files_directory" option that allows administrators to include multiple server configuration files from a directory (e.g. /etc/barman.d). The following aliases for special backup identifiers (ID) are now supported: latest, last, oldest, and first. With 'barman list-backup all', you can now list backups for all the configured servers. This release honors the "application_name" option for connection information on PostgreSQL >= 9.0. It fixes an important bug: missing WAL files are now ignored during deletion (#18).
Release Notes: This release fixes a minor bug in the recover command introduced in version 1.1.0.
Release Notes: This release includes support for hook scripts to be executed before and after a 'backup' command (through the 'pre_backup_script' and 'post_backup_script' configuration options). Management of multiple servers to the 'backup' command has been added too: 'barman backup all' now iteratively backs up all the configured servers. Minor bugs have been fixed and more accurate checks have been added to the command line interface. Clearer messages improve usability.
Release Notes: This is the first Open Source release.
