EnterpriseDB has announced EDB Postgres Distributed (PGD) 5.0, an advanced database enhancement that uniquely solves the problem of planned downtime and unplanned outages for enterprises running business-critical applications. According to the company, the solution answers the market demand for five 9s availability in business-critical applications. Extreme high availability allows customers to run PostgreSQL with up to 99.999%+ availability through innovative active-active technology, a capability that no other Postgres-native database offers.
Accompanied by EDB’s newly launched Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) and PostgreSQL’s intrinsic security and disaster recovery features, EDB Postgres Distributed 5.0 is an ideal solution for modern cybersecurity infrastructure and database productivity. With PGD 5.0, enterprises can now experience extreme high availability with minimal downtime in case of a data incident and TDE reduces the likelihood of business-critical data being stolen or lost forever.
EDB Postgres Distributed 5.0 is immediately available through EDB Extreme High Availability, an add-on to EDB Enterprise and Standard Plans. Additionally, it will soon be released in EDB BigAnimal, EDB’s fully managed database-as-a-service. EDB Postgres Distributed 5.0 empowers enterprises to achieve the following benefits:
- Maximize uptime: Extreme high availability ensures that high-value transactions happen when they need to and allows businesses to deliver the uptime customers and partners expect.
- Protect business-critical applications: Redundancy architecture for frequently accessed applications provides a higher level of availability and protection.
- Increase availability of web-based applications: Redirecting traffic to functional servers ensures online applications stay up and running in the event a server fails.
- Avoid productivity disruption: Businesses can perform full version upgrades and maintenance with little downtime and can avoid costly maintenance weekends.
EDB will soon offer a 60-day self-guided trial of EDB Postgres Distributed 5.0.
