Release Radar: EDB Open Sources Trusted Postgres Architect (TPA) for High Availability Cluster Deployments

September 07, 2023

For developers, application architects and DevOps professionals, the complex tasks of deploying and maintaining High Availability (HA) clusters involve decisions that can make or break performance while impacting operational resiliency and data accuracy. To add to this, not all organizations running Postgres are equipped with HA solutions or have the necessary expertise to navigate these complexities.

With the latest release, EDB is open sourcing Trusted Postgres Architect (TPA) to help emerging and experienced Postgres users avoid some of the most common pitfalls in implementing HA clusters. Ease of use, confident automation and simplified cluster deployment will now be available to all. EDB has been a strong contributor to the Postgres community over the years with its PostgreSQL contributions. This release marks EDB’s latest milestone in its long-standing history as a leading contributor to the open source community, including free training.

In recent years, PostgreSQL has skyrocketed in popularity across industries and established itself as the go-to database for innovation leaders. Postgres is the database technology of choice among database administrators, developers, architects, and IT leaders, and the Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2023 confirms it. One of PostgreSQL’s greatest strengths is that it is community driven. 

EDB is deeply involved with and committed to the PostgreSQL community, with the goal of constantly improving and building upon the software. EDB is also active in promoting and facilitating the adoption of PostgreSQL and related products worldwide, contributing to PostgreSQL since 2006.

Trusted Postgres Architect (TPA) embodies the best practices followed by EDB, informed by years of hard-earned experience with deploying and supporting Postgres as well as a host of HA tools. Trusted Postgres Architect (TPA) is a proven tool that developers, application architects, and DevOps personnel responsible for deploying databases (DBA) can benefit from.

EDB’s industry-leading HA solution, EDB Postgres Distributed, leverages Trusted Postgres Architect (TPA) to deploy HA clusters in a self-managed setting. Developers love Trusted Postgres Architect (TPA) for its simplicity and ease of use, along with its sophistication for customization when necessary.
