I would like to know if DO live snapshots and backups are atomic. I mean, do they create a point in time snapshot of the file system?
I’m asking this because if live snapshots are atomic, then I can safely backup Postgresql data with a simple live snapshot on the server (indeed Postgresql uses WAL for transactions).
