EDB Cloud Database Service™

EDB Cloud Database Service™

EDB Cloud Database Service (CDS) offers fast access to Postgres databases in a concierge-hosted service. In minutes, CDS configures a cluster of database machines with:

  • Monitoring
  • Streaming replication
  • Connection pooling
  • Load balancing
  • Automatic failover (transaction or recovery time preferred)
  • Secure data encryption
  • Rotating user-scheduled backups
  • Point-in-time recovery
  • Elastic storage
  • Elastic scale out

Simplified deployment allows you to take advantage of automatic scaling of storage resources and scale out of read replicas when a database cluster reaches user-defined thresholds. This provides unattended, around-the-clock responsiveness to unpredictable load demands on your database infrastructure without management responsibilities associated with a self-managed cloud network.

This document is written to acquaint you with the process of deploying on Cloud Database Service; it is not a comprehensive guide to using CDS or Postgres database products.
