Cloud databases and database-as-a-service (DBaaS) solutions can offer significant advantages over the on-premise databases in terms of agility with which databases can be provisioned in the cloud, savings in terms of capital expenditures, and reduction in IT staff to manage the infrastructure and databases. However, there are new challenges that one must be aware of and ask the right questions before considering the cloud database.
In today’s rapidly evolving, data-driven world, C-level executives in banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) are under tremendous pressure to ensure their database systems are operating as they should be. Download this eBook to discover how database stability and resiliency are helping CIOs overcome their challenges and sleep more soundly.
This white paper presents a framework and a series of recommendations to secure and protect a PostgreSQL database. We discuss a layered security model that addresses physical security, network security, host access control, database access management, and data security.
How can you tell if your support is falling short? In this eBook, we’ll discuss 6 major indicators that your Postgres support isn’t all it needs to be.
This white paper focuses on the most popular source and target for database migrations: moving from Oracle to Postgres. Oracle is the #1 legacy database, and its extremely onerous license policies are driving the majority of migration demand.
“PostgreSQL's speed, security and robustness make it suitable for 99% of applications, so it's a great starting place for any application.” This suitability is one of the main reasons why PostgreSQL has become so popular.

If you are installing EDB on RHEL7 machines, RPMs are the way to go. There are many reasons for this, a few of which are using consistent installation paths and that it is the standard way to install on RHEL derivatives.
This whitepaper describes the blueprint for Always On architectures for PostgreSQL. These architectures reflect EDB’s recommended practices and help customers achieve highest possible service availability in multiple different configurations, ranging from single-location architectures all the way to complex distributed systems that protect from hardware failures and data centre failures.
A discussion of what it means to be ‘Always On,’ what the obstacles are, and how bidirectional replication and EDB Postgres Distributed creates a PostgreSQL replication alternative to proprietary replication software, such as Oracle® Real Application Cluster (RAC).
This white paper introduces the EDB Postgres Distributed Always On architecture—focusing on high availability, where EDB Postgres Distributed provides unparalleled protection from infrastructure issues, combined with near zero-downtime maintenance and management capabilities.
