TimescaleDB takes advantage of the reliable backup and restore functionality provided by PostgreSQL. There are a few different mechanisms you can use to backup your self-hosted TimescaleDB database:
- Logical backups with pg_dump and pg_restore.
- Physical backups with
pg_basebackupor another tool.
- DEPRECATED Ongoing physical backups using write-ahead log (WAL) archiving.
Forget about manually creating and maintaining backups
If you would prefer not to manually create backups and keep them up to date for your TimescaleDB instance, you might find the automatic backups on Timescale Cloud useful. In addition to automatically maintaining backups, the platform also handles automatic restore from backups with no user action required. Learn more about backup and restore in Timescale Cloud or test it out yourself with a free trial.
