High Availability for Business Continuity
Database downtime can cost your business significant revenue. While PostgreSQL is incredibly stable, database failures can still occur, due to underlying software, compute, or network issues. Failover Manager automatically identifies PostgreSQL database failures and switches the primary database to the most current standby.
Why choose Failover Manager?
By itself, PostgreSQL does not identify a database failure or automatically switch traffic to a standby database. Failover Manager gives you peace of mind by automatically detecting primary database failures and promoting the most up-to-date standby database to take over.
Ensure business continuity
Monitor the health of your databases and identify failures quickly
Minimize unplanned downtime
Switchover on demand to move the primary database server role to a standby
Maintain high availability
Meet your organization’s SLAs by switching over to the most recent standby and reconfiguring other standbys to point to the new primary
How it works
Failover Manager continuously monitors your PostgreSQL service to automatically detect failures. After an outage is confirmed, Failover Manager automatically promotes the most up-to-date standby database as the new primary.
Continuously monitors system health
Detects failures and takes action to maintain SLAs. Sends email alerts based on events.
Automatically fails over to the most current standby
Reconfigures other standbys to point to the new primary.
Reconfigures load balancers on failover
Easily integrates with pgPool, F5 Networks, and other load balancers.
Avoids “split brain” scenarios
Prevents two nodes from thinking that each is the primary, minimizing data loss.
