Failover Manager

High Availability for
Business Continuity

Database downtime can cost your business significant revenue. While PostgreSQL is incredibly stable, database failures can still occur, due to underlying software, compute, or network issues. Failover Manager automatically identifies PostgreSQL database failures and switches the master database to the most current standby.

Why choose Failover Manager?

By itself, PostgreSQL does not identify a database failure or automatically switch traffic to
a standby database. Failover Manager gives you peace of mind by automatically detecting
master database failures and promoting the most up-to-date standby database to take over.
