Post your question to a community of 469,926 developers. It's quick & easy.

shadowing (like IB/Firebird)

Is there a feature similar to this currently in Postgres, or will there
be? Sometimes (like in a shared hosting environment), we cannot have the
luxury of hot-swapped RAID or expensive SAN, and it's nice to be able to
have a synchronous backup so that in case a disk fails, we can recover
to the last moment just before failure.

Will PITR offer this?

Pitr recovers from the last moment before failure. Not sure what
shadowing is.
