A Year of Utility Classes
Last year at Mud we adopted a utility-first approach to CSS (also known as atomic CSS). In this article I’ll summarise what I’ve learnt from adopting atomic CSS in an agency context over the past year, and where it might or might not be appropriate to apply it.

You should be OK *if all files in the backup are part of a single
atomic snapshot*. You can't put pg_xlog or selected tablespaces on
a separate filesystem that has a separate snapshot and expect the
various snapshot to be combined to be used as a coherent backup
unless you are archiving WAL and use pg_start_backup() (before the
first snapshot is initiated) and pg_stop_backup() (after the last
snapshot is completes) to take a PITR-style recovery.

Be sure to follow all the rules for PITR-style backup and recovery,
like deleting the file and all files under pg_xlog
before starting the recovery. And of course, do NOT delete the
backup_label file created by pg_start_backup().

In Defense of Utility-First CSS
We, as developers, must be the first to embrace change. Looking back at my first reaction towards utility-first CSS, I realize how important it is we keep an open mind instead of rushing to pick a side. It doesn’t matter how experienced we think we are. Experience is great, but it can also make us believe we already have all we need to make judgment calls and don’t need to dive deeper to understand new concepts.
