- TPA manages cluster health to maximize performance and dependability with the least downtime.
EnterpriseDB Corp. announced it will release Trusted Postgres Architect (TPA) as open source under the GNU General Public License v3. This company sells a commercial version of the well-known open-source PostgreSQL database management system.
TPA is a tool for automating high-availability Postgres cluster deployment and configuration. Automating the entire procedure, from installation to ongoing maintenance, greatly reduces the complexity of cluster setup. Both EDB’s for-profit high-availability products and free, community-curated open-source tools are set up, adjusted, and managed by TPA.
According to the business, users may use it to experiment with various cluster topologies and components and quickly build high-availability clusters with only a few keystrokes. TPA manages cluster health to maximize performance and dependability with the least downtime. Configuration parameters can be saved to deploy identical clusters for testing or scaling.
The tool is built on architectures created and tested by EDB, which boasts the highest concentration of Postgres technologists and developers for disaster recovery, replication, and protection against frequent replication issues.
During revisions and software configuration updates, the software helps reduce downtime. It can achieve minimal downtime when combined with EDB’s Postgres Distributed architecture with “active-active” technology, which uses a network of separate processing nodes with access to a common replicated database.
Carl Olofson, Research Vice President at International Data Corp., stated, “This tool will empower organizations to establish and manage robust database clusters with confidence, ultimately enhancing operational resiliency and minimizing errors.”
The CloudNativePG operator for Kubernetes and various components of PostgreSQL 15 are only a few of EDB’s recent open-source contributions. Later this month, the business promised to announce new contributions to PostgreSQL 16.
