2ndQuadrant‘s friendly consultant, Andreas Kretschmer delivered an extremely good job. Within only one week, he helped us migrate our four historically grown PostgreSQL servers, differing in respect to Linux platforms, PostgreSQL installation sources, and extensions, to a new, consolidated server landscape, and set up a centralised backup scheme based on Barman. He acted very flexibly according to the ever-changing daily work in our scientific computing department, and had competent answers to any questions that would arise.
With consulting performed by 2ndQuadrant, Navionics welcomed a migration to PostgreSQL, drastically lowering the cost of our database management and software licensing.
It is now the expectation to select Postgres over Oracle for a range of use-cases, with Postgres becoming our preferred technology choice.
