Mammoth PostgreSQL Replicator 1.4 released

Posted on 2005-01-12

Mammoth PostgreSQL Replicator 1.4 is the latest generation of the PostgreSQL

replication engine from Command Prompt, Inc. As with any major software

release, this new version includes bug fixes and new features. The major

new features included in this release are:

Live promotion. The ability to promote a slave to a master without the

need to restart the database.

Non blocking full dump. When a slave requires a full sync with the master,

replicator no longer requires an exclusive lock on the master. This new

feature allows full dumps to occur without effecting normal operation.

Mammoth PostgreSQL Replicator is an asynchronous replication system designed

to be WAN and faulty connection tolerant. It is 100% community PostgreSQL

compatible. Unlike other replication solutions, Mammoth PostgreSQL Replicator

is part of the database, does not require triggers or additional sql

modifications for use. Replicator uses a distributed TransactionLog system

to keep track of updates produced by the Master database. The system allows

for multiple Slaves to receive updates in either a continuous or batch mode.

Mammoth PostgreSQL from Command Prompt, Inc. is a robust, reliable,

SQL-compatible Object Relational Database Management System (ORDBMS). It is

designed to give small to medium size businesses the power, performance, and

open-standard support they desire.

Written in "C" as an addition to the PostgreSQL database Mammoth PostgreSQL

Replicator delivers a new level of reliability and provides that last missing

key feature for 24/7 PostgreSQL usage.

PostgreSQL is the worlds most reliable and extensible Open Source database.

Unlike its primary Open Source competitor it is truly ACID compliant and

offers features such as triggers, stored procedures, domain constraints

and an open development model.

Command Prompt, Inc., provides support, custom programming, and services

for PostgreSQL. Service contracts, as well as time and materials support are

available, allowing for single-point accountability for a customer's

database solution.
