Introduction to pgEdge

Introduction to pgEdge

pgEdge is a fully distributed PostgreSQL database that delivers low-latency access, ultra-high availability, and addresses data-residency requirements. Multiple nodes in a pgEdge cluster support both read and write operations, making it a true multi-master (active-active) system.

Because pgEdge is 100% pure PostgreSQL, many applications can run on pgEdge without any modifications. PostgreSQL extensions that you know and love are available in pgEdge. pgEdge stays up-to-date with the latest PostgreSQL releases, ensuring that all the most recent enhancements in each release are available.

Deployment Options

pgEdge Cloud: A fully managed Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS), handling everything from provisioning to security and monitoring. It's accessible via a web dashboard, CLI, and API, and available for AWS, Azure, and GCP. There are three editions of pgEdge Cloud. In Developer and Team editions, pgEdge runs the underlying cloud infrastructure in its own cloud accounts, allowing customers to quickly provision databases with a serverless approach. In Enterprise edition, customers use pgEdge Cloud to provision clusters and supporting infrastructure into their own cloud accounts, also known as Bring Your Own Account (BYOA).

Distributed Postgres is made possible by using logical replication to distribute changes amongst database nodes. pgEdge developed the Spock PostgreSQL extension for this purpose. Learn more about Spock at the pgEdge blog site. (opens in a new tab)
