Revolutionary multi-master clustering technology Postgres-BDR selected by leading Data Security Company for their distributed database
SAN MATEO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / JULY 25, 2019 / 2ndQuadrant today announced a collaboration with , on an industry-leading enterprise key management platform. The platform combines , a Thales company and 2ndQuadrant’s (bi-directional replication) to provide -BDR database support. BDR is a groundbreaking, multi-master clustering tool for databases. With challenging demands of the modern business environment increasing, the third generation of BDR achieves efficiency and accuracy, ensuring capabilities (up to five nines of availability) in a geographically distributed cluster.
"The integration of 2ndQuadrant's database replication capabilities with the industry-leading enterprise key management of theplatform allows our clients to have unprecedented security and compliance when securing their most important business asset - their data," said Todd Moore, Vice President of Encryption Products at Thales.
The growing demand for geographically distributed bi-directional replication (BDR) has driven the focused development of-BDR by 2ndQuadrant. The result is built-in high availability for geographically distributed databases. The architecture makes use of shadow masters, combined with auto- and switchover, guaranteeing continuous service even when a system component or an entire data center fails. This provides enterprise database systems with a true high-availability solution that has the ability to recover from disasters.
-BDR also performs rolling upgrades with zero downtime or disruption of service in the cluster. The continuous delivery of updates to a cluster avoids downtime when a new release or is made available, allowing BDR to cope perfectly with the performance need of high-availability systems.
