GitLab database incident

For your information:

Lessons learned:

    Engineers should get more sleeps
    Restore strategy is more important than backup strategy
    Testing backup plans would not be a bad idea. If we don't test backups, we don't have them. We must rechecking backup/restore plans monthly, quarterly or yearly
    Always careful, anything with sudo command, we need to double/triple check
    Change terminal PS1 format/colors to make it clear whether you’re using production or staging
      RED for production
      Blue/green for staging
    Show the full hostname in the bash prompt for all users by default (e.g: db1.staging.gitlab.com instead of just db1)
