EnterpriseDB (EDB) announces that Trusted Postgres Architect (TPA) is now available as a new open source tool, accessible to all PostgreSQL users. This deployment automation and configuration management tool streamlines the setup of High Availability (HA) Postgres clusters, helping organizations effortlessly deploy robust, production-ready clusters while saving time and reducing the chance of errors.

Deploying and maintaining HA clusters is a complex process involving decisions that can make or break performance and impact operational resiliency and data accuracy. Furthermore, not all organizations have the necessary in-house expertise to navigate these complexities.

With this launch, TPA gives enterprises the benefit of EDB’s industry-leading expertise throughout the lifecycle of a cluster, from selecting the right set up to keeping it running smoothly. Plus, TPA handles setting up, adjusting, and overseeing both community open source tools and EDB's advanced high-availability solutions. This benefits the entire Postgres community by providing an easy, trustworthy and consistent way to handle clusters.

Deploying robust production database clusters is clearly of huge importance to anyone operating mission-critical applications. This solution gives Postgres users peace of mind, reducing the chance of errors and saving time. With TPA, users can expect the following benefits:

  • Simple Structure, Optimal Performance: User-friendly structure allows for experimenting with various cluster architectures and components. With just a few simple commands, users can create and manage HA architectures, ensure optimal performance and reliability, and minimize downtime.
  • Tested and Trusted Architecture Selection: EDB’s Postgres experts design and test architectures to implement backups for disaster recovery, replication for high availability, and protection against replication pitfalls. TPA’s concise, declarative syntax makes it easy for users to experiment with these base architectures.
  • Minimize Downtime: TPA helps minimize downtime through changes and software configuration updates.
  • Backed by a builder of Postgres: As one of the leading contributors to Postgres, EDB has unmatched expertise that empowers customers to make informed decisions at every step, from architecture selection to sustaining high availability.
