EnterpriseDB (EDB) is making Trusted Postgres Architect (TPA) available as a new open source tool, accessible to all PostgreSQL users. This deployment automation and configuration management tool streamlines the setup of high availability (HA) Postgres clusters, helping organizations effortlessly deploy robust, production-ready clusters while saving time and reducing the chance of errors.
With this launch, TPA gives enterprises the benefit of EDB’s expertise throughout the lifecycle of a cluster, from selecting the right set up to keeping it running smoothly. Plus, TPA handles setting up, adjusting, and overseeing both community open source tools and EDB’s advanced high-availability solutions. This benefits the entire Postgres community by providing an easy, trustworthy and consistent way to handle clusters.
With TPA, users can expect the following benefits:
- Simple Structure, Optimal Performance: User-friendly structure allows for experimenting with various cluster architectures and components. With just a few simple commands, users can create and manage HA architectures, ensure optimal performance and reliability, and minimize downtime.
- Tested and Trusted Architecture Selection: EDB’s Postgres experts design and test architectures to implement backups for disaster recovery, replication for high availability, and protection against replication pitfalls. TPA’s concise, declarative syntax makes it easy for users to experiment with these base architectures.
- Near-Zero Downtime: TPA helps minimize downtime through changes and software configuration updates. And when used in combination with EDB Postgres Distributed’s Always On architecture for active-active use cases, near zero downtime can be achieved.
- Backed by a builder of Postgres: As one of the leading contributors to Postgres, EDB has unmatched expertise that empowers customers to make informed decisions at every step, from architecture selection to sustaining high availability.
Previous open source contributions from EDB include CloudNativePG, the first open source operator optimized for Kubernetes, as well as major contributions to PostgreSQL 15. EDB plans to announce additional contributions to PostgreSQL 16 later this month.
