Tech Guide: How to build a local EDB Red Hat repository without direct internet access

If you are installing EDB on RHEL7 machines, RPMs are the way to go. There are many reasons for this, a few of which are using consistent installation paths and that it is the standard way to install on RHEL derivatives.

Postgres-BDR Always On Architectures

This whitepaper describes the blueprint for Always On architectures for PostgreSQL. These architectures reflect EDB’s recommended practices and help customers achieve highest possible service availability in multiple different configurations, ranging from single-location architectures all the way to complex distributed systems that protect from hardware failures and data centre failures. The architectures leverage Postgres-BDR’s multi-master capability and leverage its ability to achieve 99.999% availability including maintenance operations.

6 Critical Questions to Boost Your Cloud Database Performance

Cloud databases and database-as-a-service (DBaaS) solutions can offer significant advantages over the on-premise databases in terms of agility with which databases can be provisioned in the cloud, savings in terms of capital expenditures, and reduction in IT staff to manage the infrastructure and databases. However, there are new challenges that one must be aware of and ask the right questions before considering the cloud database.

The End of the Reign of Oracle RAC: Postgres-BDR Always On

A discussion of what it means to be ‘Always On,’ what the obstacles are, and how bidirectional replication and Postgres-BDR (TM) creates a PostgreSQL replication alternative to proprietary replication software, such as Oracle® Real Application Cluster (RAC).

Postgres-BDR: The Next Generation of PostgreSQL High Availability

This white paper introduces the BDR technology and the Postgres-BDR Always On architecture—focusing on high availability, where BDR provides unparalleled protection from infrastructure issues, combined with near zero-downtime maintenance and management capabilities.
