Announcing the release of Postgres-XL 10R1Beta1
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:
Declarative table partitioning
Improved query parallelism
Significant general performance improvements
Improved monitoring and control
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
