Management Tool Suite

The EDB Postgres Platform provides a complete set of management tools that allow DBAs and Enterprise Architects to create highly available and extremely reliable solutions with over 99.99% availability.

EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager

EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager’s (PEM) monitoring and alerting capabilities are key for successful Postgres-based digital business solutions that meet stringent SLAs and performance requirements. PEM collects performance and status data from the databases it monitors, from the operating system, and it collects data resulting from jobs it executes on the database host. Data is displayed in dashboards and analyzed for alert conditions. Alerts can be relayed to operators or to other enterprise-level management systems. PEM also allows DBAs and developers to work with the databases directly, execute DDL and DML commands, tune queries, manage indexes, run backups, and deploy software updates.

EDB Failover Manager

EDB Failover Manager (EFM) provides the high availability infrastructure for EDB Postgres. EFM monitors the members of a Postgres cluster, identifies and verifies database failures quickly and reliably, and if needed promotes a standby node to become the cluster master and issues alerts.

EDB Backup and Recovery Tool

EDB Backup and Recovery Tool (BART) is a key component of an enterprise-level Postgres-based data management strategy.  BART implements retention policies and point-in-time recovery requirements for large-scale Postgres deployments. Bart 2.0 (beta) provides block-level incremental backup.

Connection Management

EDB pgPool II

pgPool II provides robust query routing and connection pooling for Postgres-based solutions. pgPool’s query routing capability  can be used to create read-scalable Postgres clusters that complement EFM’s high availability capabilities.

EDB Migration Tool Suite

EDB’s Migration Toolkit migrates tables, data, stored procedures (Oracle only) and custom developed packages (Oracle only) from SQL Server, Sybase and Oracle to EDB Advanced Server.

A series of specialized database connectors for JDBC, ODBC, .NET, OCL (supports the key functions of the Oracle Client Interface) and ECPGPlus (supports the key functions of Oracle’s ProC interface) simplify the migration of applications from Oracle databases to EDB Advanced Server.

EDB Migration Tool Kit

EDB’s Migration Toolkit (MTK) migrates tables, data, stored procedures (Oracle only) and custom developed packages (Oracle only) from SQL Server, Sybase, Oracle and MySQL to EDB Advanced Server. More limited capabilities are available for migrations to PostgreSQL.

EDB Integration Tool Suite

Data management solutions need to integrate with the rest of the enterprise. EDB’s integration tools include change-data capture based replication and data adapters, based on SQL/MED (Management of External Data)

EDB Data Adapters

EDB Postgres Data Adapters are Postgres Foreign Data Wrappers, implementing the SQL/MED (Management of External Data) standard to provide transparent data integration to support data federation in digital business solutions.
The remote data sources include MongoDB®, Hadoop®, and MySQL™.

EDB Replication Server

EDB Replication Server (EPRS) provides a robust data replication platform that replicates between Postgres databases in a single-master or multi-master mode, or from non-Postgres databases to Postgres in a single master mode. EPRS provides geographic load balancing, simplifies real-time migration, and enables heterogeneous data integration.

Data Management

EDB Postgres Advanced Server

EDB Postgres Advanced Server is EDB’s enhanced Postgres database designed to meet the needs of the digital enterprise. EDB Advanced Server incorporates all of PostgreSQL’s features with additional enterprise-class functionality for enhanced performance and security requirements for enterprise workloads. EDB Advanced Server features improve DBA and developer productivity. Oracle users benefit from EDB Advanced Server’s native database compatibility with Oracle, including PL/SQL, built-in packages, and many DBA tools to accelerate and simplify migrations.
