For full instance physical backups (which are especially useful for starting up new replicas), pg_basebackup works with all TimescaleDB installation types. You can also use any of several external backup and restore managers such as pg_backrest, or barman. For ongoing physical backups, you can use wal-e, although this method is now deprecated. These tools all allow you to take online, physical backups of your entire instance, and many offer incremental backups and other automation options.
