Uplevel Your Database Expertise with Free BigAnimal Training from EDB

January 17, 2024

2024 is the year of the dragon. But it may also be the year of the cloud, as more and more organizations move their open source databases there. In 2023, organizations spent $563.6 billion on public cloud services, and in 2024, Gartner predicts this number will skyrocket to $679 billion.
With Postgres being the go-to database for businesses looking to innovate without boundaries, and our fully managed EDB BigAnimal cloud service accelerating time to market by 30% and reducing subscription and support costs by 50% for most of our customers, BigAnimal and open source Postgres are the ultimate combination.

Even with all the advantages of open source though, some businesses are facing challenges due to a lack of open source skills, experience and proficiency according to the 2023 State of Open Source Report. And while it’s critical for teams to have Postgres cloud computing skills, training can be expensive. Fortunately, EDB has a solution.
To help our customers make the most of Postgres on the cloud, we’re providing on-demand training on our BigAnimal cloud offering. And in the spirit of open source, we’ve made this training  free. Whether you’re planning on running or are already running BigAnimal on our cloud account or your own, our comprehensive courses are designed to assist you at every stage. 
Led by the most knowledgeable Postgres experts in the industry, these courses cater to different skill levels, from beginners to advanced. With training delivered through online sessions, webinars and interactive workshops, it couldn’t be easier to explore BigAnimal’s capabilities and enhance your Postgres skills at your own pace.
You can choose from courses like:
Introduction to BigAnimal: Get an introduction to cloud databases and learn about the key features of our EDB BigAnimal DBaaS offering.
Getting Started with BigAnimal: Walk through the steps to create a single node cluster, make cluster property changes, create a Postgres database and database table, make database table data changes and more.
BigAnimal Cluster Creation: See the three cluster types supported by BigAnimal, the property configuration categories needed to create the clusters, Cloud Provider deployment options and more.
BigAnimal Security: Explore BigAnimal’s security features and compliance with certification standards.

Maintaining your BigAnimal Cluster: Learn about Postgres database authentication configuration, Faraway replica functionality, backup and restore cluster functionality, and the options for monitoring metrics and logging.

If you’d like to focus on enhancing your open source skills, we also offer additional courses on PostgreSQL.
As the leading source of Postgres innovation, EDB has recently been named as the Best Postgres Certification Program by Datamation. To date, we’ve trained more than 30,000 Postgres users and have helped more than 2,500 become Postgres certified. We’re here to train you and your team, too.
So even though overall spending on public cloud services is expected to grow in 2024, training on open source doesn’t have to be a significant part of that expense. At least not when you’re tapping into our no-cost training courses and experiencing the benefits of a fully managed Postgres cloud database service – without any unnecessary overhead.
