We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

class { '::postgresql':
  use_latest_release => true,

Configure a backup job with default settings:

postgresql::backup { 'my_database_name': }

Customize backup schedule:
