Dev/Ops deployment speed and flexibility without the loss of control
EDB Postgres Ark is a DBaaS for hybrid cloud deployments of Postgres to public and private clouds; on Amazon, Azure, OpenStack, and other deployment platforms. EDB Postgres Ark provides a unified UI (graphical and API) to control and manage deployments across multiple platforms from a single management console that you manage and control. EDB Postgres Ark deployments are highly available, have integrated disaster recovery, cross-platform replication (database, provider and geo), self healing capabilities and with EDB Postgres make migrations a snap. EDB Postgres Ark gives IT managers the ideal combination of deployment flexibility combined with centralized control and monitoring while providing developers point and click simplicity, flexibility and speed when developing and deploying applications.
EDB Postgres Ark simplifies the process of provisioning robust Postgres deployments while taking advantage of the benefits of cloud computing. When used with Advanced Server, EDB Postgres Ark also provides a platform for compatibility with the Oracle database, offering dramatic cost savings and competitive advantages.
The EDB Postgres Ark Management Server allows for quick and easy creation of Postgres clusters – each cluster being immediately set up with high availability, automatic backup and recovery, load balancing and basic monitoring and management. Optionally, every cluster can be encrypted to provide an environment that is both secure and transparent to connecting applications.
Scale Out and Scale-up
EDB Postgres Ark provides scale out for increased read performance, scale-out for increased data storage, and scale up to increase RAM or CPU. Scaling thresholds for # of server connections or % of storage used can be used to automatically add new replicas to the cluster or increase the storage assigned to the cluster. The UI allows for simple upscaling (or downscaling) of the machine types to change RAM or CPU as needed.
Migration and Compatibility with Oracle
EDB Postgres Ark offers full support for EDB Postgres Advanced Server, thus combining the flexibility of a DBaaS framework with the compatibility for the Oracle database. EDB Advanced Server compatibility for Oracle Database includes
- SPL – A native implementation of a stored procedure language that supports the key constructs of PL/SQL
- APIs that support key capabilities of Oracle’s JDBC, ODBC, .NET, OCI and Pro*C interfaces
- Packages that provide the key functionality of the most popular Oracle packages
- Declarative partitioning to ease the migration from Oracle
- DBA tools that make it easy to migrate established work processes and skill set to EDB Advanced Server
- Tools that automatically migrate data definitions, data, stored procedures and packages to EDB Postgres Advanced Server.
