BDR provides up to 99.9999% (six 9s) availability for your PostgreSQL databases. BDR achieves true high availability with rapid switchover and rolling upgrades for database and schemas.
BDR supports geographically distributed clusters without any limitations on distance and includes the ability for geo-fencing. It is designed to minimize latency across nodes.
BDR is designed ground up for cloud deployments. Using the self-healing Kubernetes operator you can quickly deploy BDR in trusted configurations with very high availability.
Multi-Master Replication in BDR allows efficient replication for both DDL and DML with automatic conflict resolution. It also offers Conflict-free Replicated Data Types (CRDTs) which support merging values from concurrently modified rows.
Feature of the Month: Geo-fencing
BDR supports Geo-fencing, allowing you to selectively replicate data for security compliance and jurisdiction control, as well as providing performance improvements. Read more about this and other BDR features in the whitepaper.
Choose the best for your requirements from amongst a variety of different deployment options for BDR. All listed options include 24/7 Support, Training, hands-on help, & access to our Portal.
- BDR 60-Day Trial. Install BDR on physical or virtual platforms.

Monitoring and Management
OmniDB is an interactive and powerful, yet lightweight, database management tool. It allows users to manage multiple databases in a unified workspace with a user-friendly and fast-performing interface. OmniDB provides monitoring and management for BDR clusters, allowing the user to view/add/remove nodes from groups and perform all tasks on every node.
An example of the OmniDB interface and the BDR plugin is available here.
