- What is your PostgreSQL centered product?
Our Standby MultiPlatform software is designed to simplify Disaster Recovery for PostgreSQL. Handling Disaster Recovery in PostgreSQL can be intricate, time-intensive, and prone to human error. Our software aims to alleviate these challenges by streamlining the process of standby creation and management, ensuring a secure environment for users.
It provides a straightforward and automated approach to set up and verify standby configurations across various PostgreSQL versions and operating systems. By removing unnecessary complexities and incorporating features like pre-checks and intuitive workflows, the software not only saves time but also enhances user experience. Users can perform tasks more efficiently with one-click, multi-cluster actions such as creation, switchover, or failover. Our goal is to make Disaster Recovery for PostgreSQL practical, reliable, and user-friendly.
- Which feature is missing in PostgreSQL?
PostgreSQL traditionally requires manual configuration for setting up primary and standby databases, lacking an out-of-the-box solution for automatic configuration in this regard. Users have to implement complex procedures and scripts to establish and manage the primary and standby instances, which could be a cumbersome process, particularly in dynamic and evolving database environments.
- Why does your company attend PostgreSQL Conference Europe?
With over 15 years of expertise in Disaster Recovery, we've become trusted leaders in the field. Our solution has been embraced by over 1,700 customers across 120 countries, all relying on us for their Oracle SE and/or Microsoft SQL Server databases. Our primary goal is to provide DBAs with exceptional experience in managing their critical databases.
While PostgreSQL offers a free and open-source platform, creating a comprehensive Disaster Recovery solution still entails significant expenses, including hardware, software licenses, skilled personnel, third-party support, and ongoing operational costs. We are eager to contribute to this thriving community and demonstrate to DBAs how straightforward it can be to consistently and effortlessly meet their Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) while streamlining common Disaster Recovery tasks.
