PostgreSQL High Availability

Advanced object-relational database management for data integrity and reliability 

Maintain complex systems in a persistent state with a fully managed DBMS  

Appz, CLOUDCONTROL

Enterprises need a robust database to serve as persistent storage for the copious amounts of data created every day. As the number of transactions per second and the volume of saved data grow, they need is a resilient and flexible architecture that can expand proportionately without impacting ease of access.

What is PostgreSQL? 

PostgreSQL is a robust, open-source Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) which gives users the flexibility to handle both non-relational and relational queries using the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format. PostgreSQL is adept at efficiently managing diverse workloads, ranging from individual machines to large-scale environments. It provides a wide range of extensions, enabling businesses to customize the database to suit their needs without compromising the core structure.

PostgreSQL High Availability from Cloud Control

PostgreSQL High Availability (Postgres HA) is a cutting-edge solution that can gauge a database management system’s resilience during an infrastructure failure. We leverage Postgres HA to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of application clusters in the cloud by seamlessly transitioning from the primary server to a standby server in the event of a failure. With amazing versatility and wide-ranging utility, Postgres HA offers diverse applications across various domains.

Benefits

Appz, CLOUDCONTROL

Remarkable performance

Developers can write operations simultaneously without having to read and write locks. When dealing with vast amounts of data, indexes speed up searches by allowing databases to discover a specific row without shuffling around all the data. In addition, users can design expression indexes that work on the result of an expression or a function rather than the value of a column. We also support partial indexing, parallelization of reading queries, Just-in-time (JIT) compilation of expressions, and layered transactions for higher performance and efficiency.

Dynamic loading

We empower users to integrate their custom code easily with dynamic loading. Whether it’s defining an object code file, like a shared object code file, to introduce novel functions or types, Postgres HA will load it effortlessly. This unparalleled flexibility enables the swift construction of cutting-edge storage structures and applications while maintaining optimal performance.
