Announcing the release of Postgres-XL 10R1Beta1

2ndQuadrant announced today the release of Postgres-XL 10r1beta1, now available for download here

Postgres-XL is a massively parallel database built on top of - and very closely compatible with - community PostgreSQL and its set of advanced features. It supports both Business Intelligence workloads and high-volume transactional write and read workloads, all on the same platform.

Postgres-XL is fully open source; as we begin to move towards a fully parallel, sharded version of core PostgreSQL, many parts of Postgres-XL will feed directly or indirectly into later releases of PostgreSQL.

Postgres-XL 10R1Beta1 introduces the following enhancements from major PostgreSQL latest releases: 

PostgreSQL 10

  • Declarative table partitioning

  • Improved query parallelism

  • Significant general performance improvements

  • Improved monitoring and control

PostgreSQL 9.6

  • Parallel execution of sequential scans, joins and aggregates

  • Avoid scanning pages unnecessarily during vacuum freeze operations

  • Substantial performance improvements, especially in the area of scalability on multi-CPU-socket servers

  • Full-text search can now search for phrases (multiple adjacent words)

This new release also includes several bug fixes and Postgres-XL specific enhancements. The distributed planner code has been rewritten to utilise advances in the PostgreSQL code.
