pgEdge Cloud Developer Edition Forwards Postgres Ease-of-Use and Greater Visibility

pgEdge, the leading company dedicated to distributed Postgres, is unveiling pgEdge Cloud Developer Edition, the next stage of pdEdge’s mission to make it easy for developers to build and deploy distributed database applications. This free tier offering—which builds on pgEdge Cloud’s optimizations for the network edge, based completely on the PostgreSQL database—enables developers to deploy and access Postgres databases with both low latency and high availability.

The advent of pgEdge Cloud was born from a need for low latency, “always on” applications that can function across a multitude of cloud regions. By moving database modes closer to global users and employing seamless nearest-node routing, pgEdge Cloud largely reduces latency and application response times with its multi-master architecture. This innovation is further delivered with user intuitiveness in mind, making it simple for developers to create, manage, and monitor distributed database clusters.

In the Developer Edition, users benefit from these same technological boons while being able to create custom clusters in their own cloud account. This not only grants greater visibility into their databases and the infrastructure it's deployed on, but freedom from database size and database node quantity and location restrictions.

“Our mission is to make it easy for developers to build and deploy distributed database applications, so this was our inspiration—to make it easy for developers to get up and going with pgEdge Distributed Postgres,” said Phillip Merrick, co-founder and CEO of pgEdge. “We think we've done that with Developer Edition; you can literally get to a deployed cluster of distributed databases in around 90 seconds.”

Noting user ease, pgEdge Cloud Developer Edition places particular emphasis on alleviating the pains of developer labor.

“We know that many developers prefer to utilize databases via easy-to-use serverless cloud services, and this has guided us also. With pgEdge Cloud Developer Edition, the developer does not have to deal with any server or cloud infrastructure. They can simply create their databases and immediately connect to them,” explained Merrick.

Pre-built global clusters allow for the easy creation and deployment of pgEdge distributed databases in regions across the U.S., U.S. and Europe, and U.S., Europe, and Asia. Developer Edition also comes with an easy-to-use dashboard that removes the need for manual infrastructure configuration and management while delivering automated backups, anti-misconfiguration security, and continuous monitoring.
