New open source-based platform version supports more complex digital applications with increased performance, greater flexibility and new parallel computing capabilities
BEDFORD, Massachusetts, Nov. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- EnterpriseDB [http://www.enterprisedb.com/](® )(EDB(TM)), the database platform company for digital business, today announced the general availability of the EDB Postgres(TM) Platform 10. The newest version of the EDB Postgres Platform drives modern digital transformation initiatives with new technology for high-speed, complex applications that enterprises need for greater operational efficiency, customer satisfaction and global competitiveness.
"Digital business relies on the capabilities of EDB Postgres for integrating data and accelerating processing across more complex environments that are now driven by agile development frameworks and DevOps methodologies," said Marc Linster, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Product Development, EDB. "With the EDB Postgres Platform 10, enterprises have the flexibility and control they need to configure data architectures for integration, performance and reliability to power the complex high-speed workloads that are transforming business."
EDB has been recognized for five consecutive years in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems [http://bit.ly/2hn1Rlf], which this year included just 11 vendors, a 65% decline from the 31 vendors included in the 2015 report. EDB maintains that this staying power is the result of providing organizations with an open source alternative that rivals traditional vendor offerings in features and performance yet provides greater cost savings and deployment flexibility on-premises and in cloud environments.
The EDB Postgres Platform [http://bit.ly/2zJEFUY] is an integrated open source-based database management platform that features all of the components for integrating and managing structured and unstructured data in a single platform. The platform also features robust and integrated tools developed by EDB using best-in-class technology for building and maintaining a modern, highly available Postgres architecture. These tool suites include:
Management Tool Suite:
-- The EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager [http://bit.ly/2msFfBG], a powerful
management tool that gives DBAs broad controls to manage, monitor and
tune large numbers of Postgres deployments from a single, easy-to-use
graphical user interface.
-- The EDB Postgres Backup and Recovery tool [http://bit.ly/2j0R2ls], which
implements retention policies and point-in-time recovery requirements
for large-scale Postgres deployments.
-- The EDB Postgres Failover Manager [http://bit.ly/2AQC75M], which
monitors the members of a Postgres cluster for health and performance
and if needed, can promote a standby to master to ensure high
Integration Tool Suite:
-- The EDB Postgres Replication Server [http://bit.ly/2APUQhN], a dynamic
and strategic replication platform with single- and multi-master
capabilities that provides geographic load balancing, simplifies
real-time migration, and enables heterogeneous data integration.
-- EDB Postgres Data Adapters [http://bit.ly/2hhW8K0], a collection of
extensions that integrate Postgres databases with disparate database
solutions, including MongoDB, MySQL and Hadoop, and speed processing
with other Postgres databases.
The New EDB Postgres Platform 10
The EDB Postgres Platform 10 incorporates the latest features and capabilities introduced in the recently released PostgreSQL 10 [http://bit.ly/2fU8LgY], as well as a host of additional enhancements in the database and tools. EDB is a major contributor to the open source PostgreSQL project and devoted tens of thousands of developer hours to building some of the most important advances in PostgreSQL 10, the largest release in recent years. These advances included improved parallel query and enhanced partitioning features.
The key new features and capabilities in the EDB Postgres Platform 10 include:
EDB Postgres Advanced Server Database:
-- Parallel Query Support: A number of enhancements have been made to
dramatically increase the amount of parallelism in the query processor
including parallel index scans, parallel bitmap heap scans, parallel
merge joins, parallel sub-plans and extended language support for
parallel queries in general.
-- WAL Tuning: EDB has created a feature for DBAs to customize the size of
their WAL (write ahead log) segments to enhance performance and
-- Pre-warm: Upon server startup the pre-warm feature returns the in-memory
cache to its last known state ensuring hot data is preloaded into
memory. This ensures optimal performance without having to wait for the
cache to be repopulated.
-- Auditing: Fine grained auditing capabilities give DBAs greater ability
to log what happens inside the database, and track activity by user, by
statement and by database.
-- SCRAM Authentication: The new Salted Challenge Response Authentication
Mechanism (SCRAM) protocol for managing passwords, implemented with
PostgreSQL 10, now means that neither the information stored on the
server nor what is exchanged during authentication is sufficient for
-- Logical Replication: In single-master configurations involving Postgres,
DBAs can now control replication by table or by database, in cases
selectively replicating individual items and aggregating data spread
across multiple servers for queries. This feature can also be used to
easily create standbys for near-zero downtime upgrades. While this
capability was implemented in PostgreSQL 10, EDB Postgres Replication
Server supports multi-master replication and more complex configurations
involving Oracle or other database vendor solutions.
-- Declarative Partitioning: By incorporating this new feature introduced
in PostgreSQL 10, the Oracle-compatible partitioning in EDB Postgres now
performs much faster and is easier to use. The feature replaces and
automates troublesome manual tasks that involved maintaining and
updating triggers and rules for creating and managing table partitions.
And, with partition controls now part of the database schema, developers
no longer must write them into the application.
-- Clone Schema: With the new EDB Clone Schema extension, DBAs can make a
copy of a schema with its database objects and data from a given
database, and insert it into another database, or into the same database
(with a different schema name). This is particularly useful in speeding
the process of backups, restores and other maintenance tasks as well as
creating multiple identical databases for training purposes.
-- Multi-column Statistics: With this feature implemented in PostgreSQL 10,
DBAs now have a single command to specify additional statistics that
should be gathered to improve query performance when what would
otherwise be gathered by default would not have been sufficient to
support creation of a high-quality query plan.
EDB Postgres Management Suite:
EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager
-- Customization: Greater customization features enable DBAs to control the
granularity in dashboards views and alerts, and to create customized
-- Control: More controls enable DBAs to better isolate activity in
specific databases and to study it across multiple parameters.
EDB Postgres Data Adapters
-- Performance: EDB developed enhanced capabilities for the EDB Postgres
Data Adapters to increase performance in distributed Postgres systems.
