TL;DR: Gigalixir now gives you direct access to your postgres backups and restore from them.
Gigalixir’s Postgres-as-a-Service product uses Google Cloud SQL under the hood and Cloud SQL automatically keeps backups of your databases. Until now, if you wanted to restore your database from one of those backups, you had to contact us and we would do it for you manually. This meant a slower turnaround time which is probably not what you want when your database is having problems.
We added a new command to the Gigalixir CLI to help.
Starting from version 1.0.11, you can :
gigalixir pg:backups:restoreto restore your database from a backup.
gigalixir pg:backupsto get a list of your available backups.
gigalixir pgto see the status of your restore operation.
