No you don't have to do all these things. Neither Odoo nor postgresql
have to be restarted.

Based on database save/restore proposed above, there is no downtime on

Based on containers for full system clone, you may have a few seconds
freeze if you don't use LVM snapshot and will never notice it.

rsync only copies files which have changed. It uses ssh, so no need to
crypt any archive and little useless traffic.
