EDB Postgres Ark™

EDB Postgres Ark™

EDB Ark automatically provisions PostgreSQL or EDB Postgres Advanced Server databases in single instances, high-availability clusters, or application development sandboxes. EDB Ark frees DBAs and application developers from the rigors of setting up and administering robust database environments. In minutes, EDB Ark configures a cluster of database machines with:

  • 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

EDB Ark’s automatic scaling of storage resources and scale out of read replicas when a database cluster reaches user-defined thresholds provides unattended, around-the-clock responsiveness to unpredictable load demands on your database infrastructure.

This document will demonstrate how to use the EDB Ark console successfully in your cloud-based database management activities.
