Now the only possibility is to restore backup for Database.It'll be great if i could download old backups as file to for ex. use it in my stage enviroments
Yes please! And to another AZ!
You can backup remotely (and restore from it) using the pg_dump and pg_restore CLI utilities, and can script/schedule these from either your own local (non-cloud) machines or from another DO droplet.
These backups can then be loaded into your own PostgreSQL servers serving your staging environment.
Further to the above, what's stopping you just firing up a droplet and doing your own backup?
Yes, its extra load that wouldn't be needed if we had access to the backups already taken, but at least it gives you your data.
Be much better idea then just to allow access to the backup copies maybe via api to copy over the internal network only to a droplet, preserving safe access to the backups.
Is there no way to download backups of the managed database to our own infrastructure/safekeeping? Surely I would fail due diligence if I allowed a situation where I could not guarantee access to the company's data without DOs assistance? No offense meant, but I would need to prove that we could get back up on our feet by ourselves should the situation arise.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
