17th September 2020: PostgreSQL 13 RC 1 Released!

Next Generation Advanced Master -> Multi-slave replication engine in beta

Posted on 2004-06-10

Slony 1, the successor to the eRServer Replication project used for hosting the .org and .info domain name registries, has entered it's second beta testing phase.


Slony 1 is designed for high volume sites and has been masterminded by Jan Wieck, a member of the PostgreSQL Core Team.

It is a working, advanced Master to Multi-Slave replication system written in C, works with PostgreSQL 7.3 and 7.4, and is BSD licenced.

Due for production release near the end of this month, Slony 1 has just entered it's second beta phase and is very well worth checking out by those with an interest in PostgreSQL replication.

More testers and contributors are welcome of course!
