How It Works

The Postgres Plus Cloud Database console is used to deploy Postgres databases to Cloud server instances. The first database deployed to an instance becomes the master database. If replica instances are selected, they will be created in a cluster with the master database.

The master database, all replica instances, and Amazon storage for the database all exist in the your AWS account, while Postgres Plus Cloud Database consoles are owned and operated by EnterpriseDB.

Cloud ServerThe architecture of the Postgres Plus Cloud Database management console and customer database cluster, showing the console managing a database cluster by using Amazon EC2, and showing how applications access the database cluster.

 

Each database cluster includes a load balancer to which applications may connect. The load balancer receives incoming requests from applications and distributes read requests across all read-only replicas within the cluster (unless there are no replicas, in which case the master handles all requests). Write requests are passed directly to the master database.

From an application's perspective, connecting to a PostgreSQL or Postgres Plus Advanced Server instance that resides in the cloud is no different than connecting to an instance that resides on traditional hardware. 

Steps performed to manage failover of a master database server in a database cluster.

When it initially connects to the Postgres database, the application authenticates itself with the server using a role defined when the server cluster was created. All IDE and development tools can connect directly to the database by using the address and port information provided when the cluster was created.

Automatic failover minimizes data loss and downtime. Should a server failure occur, two failover modes serve your needs unattended. "Transaction preferred" to prevent data loss, or "recovery preferred" to be back online as fast as possible.

A storage Logical Volume Manager (LVM) aggregates storage to scale storage up without interrupting the operation of running applications. When you provision your database, you can choose to have stored data encrypted.

A Logical Volume Manager (LVM) aggregates storage for the cluster, facilitating transparent scaling of cloud storage without adversely affecting running databases.

All database deployments use private instances that are never shared with other customers. Not only does this improve security and stabilize performance, but also allows you to treat your databases as your own — making whatever configuration or operational changes you require.

Postgres Plus Cloud Database – Basic Edition

Postgres Plus Cloud Database Basic extends the enterprise-trusted PostgreSQL database with EnterpriseDB's cloud capabilities, delivering easy-to-use automated scalability, high availability, and built-in backup and failover support.
 
PPCD Basic is the ideal choice for web companies and businesses requiring a secure and high-performance transactional database that also includes NoSQL name-value and document datatypes.
 

Meeting Essential Business Needs

Online Business Transactions

When payment processing is mission critical, you need a rock-solid, ACID-compliant, transactional database with high availability, backups, and robust recovery options. Postgres delivers these capapbilities.

Catalog and Domain Management

For transacting orders or organizing domain information for customers, you need a fully featured relational database. Postgres meets these needs as well.

Unstructured Data Management with ACID-Compliance

Analyzing large bodies of unstructured data is often essential to business success. Unlike a NoSQL-only database, Postgres provides built-in ACID-compliant document and name-value datatypes.

Rapid Development, Test, and Deploy Cycles

When a business exists in the cloud, it makes sense to do development and deployment there too. Whether you use a traditional development model or an iterative / incremental model, quickly spinning up new development and test environments is required for your success. Deploying from the cloud to the cloud is the natural choice for meeting these needs.
