EDB Postgres Ark Platform

Self service database provisioning with enterprise controls.

Flexibility and Control

EDB Ark allows organizations to set up their own Database as a Service (DBaaS). This enables their end users to provision EDB Postgres Advanced Server or PostgreSQL databases in single instances, on high-availability and secure clusters, or for application development sandboxes on public and private clouds powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

Scale Out and Scale Up

EDB Postgres Ark provides scale out for increased read performance and increased data storage. In addition you can scale up to increase RAM or CPU. Scaling thresholds for number of server connections or percentage of storage used can be used to automatically add new replicas or increase the storage assigned to the cluster.

Continuous Data Replication

Ark clusters can also be used in conjunction with EDB Replication Server. This allows for the creation of fully integrated digital business solutions that bridge from traditional on-premises databases running on SQL Server and Oracle Database, to DBaaS solutions running on Postgres. This approach combines the functionality of migration capabilities with the continuous data replication capabilities to allow users to migrate to open source-based solutions with minimal downtime.

Integration with Postgres Enterprise Manager®

Ark consoles are deployed with a version of EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager® (PEM), an enterprise management tool. It assists database administrators, system architects, and performance analysts in administering, monitoring, and tuning PostgreSQL and EnterpriseDB Advanced Server database servers.

  • Manage and monitor a handful of servers or hundreds of servers from a single console
  • Complete control over all aspects of your databases
  • Pre-configured PEM server, a PEM agent, and the PEM backing database
  • Perform advanced monitoring and management of your Ark clusters with the PEM web interface
