Hey all,

A good short read about a potential RGE* for any DBA:


The key seems to be on the Third Incident where "After a second or two he notices he ran it on db1.cluster.gitlab.com, instead of db2.cluster.gitlab.com.", coupled with "So in other words, out of five backup/replication techniques deployed none are working reliably or set up in the first place."
