Parallel Backup with gpcrondump and gpdbrestore

gpcrondump backs up the Greenplum master instance and each active segment instance at the same time. gpdbrestore takes the timestamp key generated by gpcrondump, validates the backup set, and restores database objects and data into a distributed database.
