Supported PGD upgrade paths v5

Upgrading within version 5

You can upgrade from any version 5.x release to a later 5.x release.

Upgrading from version 4 to version 5

Upgrades from PGD 4 to PGD 5 are supported from version 4.3.0. For earlier versions, upgrade to 4.3.0 before upgrading to 5. See Upgrading within 4 for more information.

Generally, we recommend that you upgrade to the latest version 4 release before upgrading to the latest version 5 release. After upgrading to 4.3.0 or later, the following upgrade paths are possible.

Upgrading from version 3.7 to version 5

At this time, TPA has enabled upgrades only from PGD 3.7 to 4 and PGD 4 to 5. If you're moving from 3.7 to 5 and want automation, you need to use this two-step upgrade path. Potentially, your proxy architecture will change multiple times from HA Proxy to HARP and finally to PGD Proxy.

Significant development was done to make upgrading directly from 3.7 to 5 possible and easier. We've expanded the database versions supported with PGD 5 and enabled the upgradeability of the BDR extension across multiple PGD versions. Previously, we supported upgrades only from the previous major version. Often, a database upgrade was also required because only one database major version was supported by both PGD versions.

Development is currently ongoing to provide a direct upgrade path from 3.7 to 5 using TPA by Q4. In the interim, you can reach out to EDB Professional Services or Support for assistance and guidance.
