EDB Unveils Open Source Trust Postgres Architect for Easy Cluster Management and Deployment

EnterpriseDB, the leader in accelerating Postgres in the enterprise, is launching the availability of its Trusted Postgres Architect (TPA) as an open source tool for all PostgreSQL users. Engineered for simple, repeatable, and robust deployment and configuration of high availability (HA) Postgres clusters, TPA saves time for organizations while simultaneously mitigating against potential errors.

Historically, HA cluster deployment and management is innately complex, often leading to decisions that may dramatically impact performance, operational resiliency, and data accuracy, according to EDB.

TPA aims to bridge the gap between HA clusters and organizations struggling to keep up with its varying needs. Instilled with deep EDB expertise on cluster lifecycles, TPA ensures that the setting up, modifying, and managing of community open source tools and EDB’s solutions is simple and intuitive.

“TPA not only embodies EDB's commitment to customer success but also reflects our ongoing pledge to support the wider Postgres community,” said Jozef de Vries, chief product Engineering officer of EDB. “Deploying robust production database clusters is clearly of huge importance to anyone operating mission-critical applications. This solution gives customers and open source users peace of mind, reducing the chance of errors and saving time.”

TPA offers a multitude of benefits that maintain simplicity, high performance, and trust throughout the HA cluster lifecycle. Its structure is user-friendly, allowing enterprises to generate and manage HA architectures with a few commands. This additionally promotes experimentation with cluster architectures and components, all while TPA ensures optimal performance, reliability, and minimized downtime through changes and software configuration updates, according to the company.

“There is growing demand for nonstop database operation and fast recovery, often accomplished by spreading databases across clusters. But establishing and maintaining a multi-cluster database can be difficult,” said Carl Olofson, research vice president at IDC. “EDB’s release of TPA is a significant stride towards providing a simple solution to this problem for the Postgres community. This tool will empower organizations to establish and manage robust database clusters with confidence, ultimately enhancing operational resiliency and minimizing errors. This initiative not only showcases EDB's commitment to enterprise customer success but also reinforces the company’s continuing efforts at fostering innovation within the Postgres ecosystem.”

EDB’s solution also features concise, declarative syntax that allows users to experiment with tested and trusted architectures that enable the implementation of backups for disaster recovery, replication for high availability, and protection against replication pitfalls, according to the vendor.

When used in addition to EDB Postgres Distributed’s Always On architecture, TPA can achieve near zero downtime for active-active use cases. Furthermore, TPA is backed by unmatched EDB expertise as contributors to Postgres.
