Creating a New Database

To create a new database, select the Databases node in the navigation tree control; then, select the + New Database icon located in the upper-right corner of the page.

Creating a Database

When the Create New Database dialog opens:

  • Provide a name for the database in the Database Name field.

  • Select the cluster you would like to use for your new database from the options shown under Select a Cluster.

    • If you are a pgEdge Enterprise Edition user, the dialog displays your clusters and their deployment regions. Check the box in a cluster pane to deploy on that cluster.

    • If you are a pgEdge Developer Edition user, you can choose from three cluster configurations for testing and experimentation:

      • US - Europe offers an East Coast/West Coast US configuration with one server in Frankfurt.
      • US offers an East Coast/Midwest/West Coast configuration.
      • Global offers servers on the West Coast, in Frankfurt, and Singapore.

Use the toggle button next to Install Northwind Database to install the Northwind sample database and schema objects.

When you've made your selections, click Create Database to initialize a PostgreSQL database and start replicating data between the nodes in the cluster. Your new database is added to the list of databases in the left pane of the console; a green dot to the left of the name indicates that the database is available for connections.
