2ndQPostgres

More speed. More reliability. More scalability.

2ndQPostgres, an enterprise version of PostgreSQL, is developed, maintained, & certified by 2ndQuadrant. It is available to 2ndQuadrant customers and includes carefully selected, quality- assured features that have not yet been integrated into the community version.  These features are added through code enhancements with a light touch to make meaningful improvements while maintaining binary and on-disk compatibility.

  • New and Original. Our customers get early access to new advanced features.
  • Backported from later releases. PostgreSQL adds new features with every major version. 2ndQPostgres allows you to benefit from the latest enhancements without needing to upgrade.

  • Runs on most important Operating Systems. As a PostgreSQL based DBMS, it runs on most Unix-like operating systems and on Windows as well.

  • Compatibility.  2ndQPostgres databases are binary compatible with the client/server protocol as well as with the on-disk format of PostgreSQL.

  • No lock-in. 2ndQPostgres allows you the ability to move between community PostgreSQL and 2ndQPostgres, and back again just by replacing the binaries and restarting the server from a clean shutdown

  • Cloud friendly. As an alternative to a traditional database environment, 2ndQPostgres is easy to deploy in the Cloud. 
  • Faster access to bug fixes. 2ndQPostgres gives you faster access to bug fixes than using standard PostgreSQL.

2ndQPostgres Features       

Due to its open, collaborative ecosystem that is based on consensus, community PostgreSQL can sometimes require a great deal of time for new features to be committed to its core. The feature set of 2ndQPostgres will change over time as the community versions grows and changes. 


Our customers are able to utilize cutting-edge features while the community acceptance process continues at its own pace.  These enhanced features make 2ndQPostgres much better at handling a larger numbers of CPUs, larger databases, and higher write workloads than standard PostgreSQL at the equivalent release level. Depending on your specific use case, by using 2ndQPostgres your database will achieve:

  • Faster & smoother physical replication that avoids intermittent slow downs and various other negative effects.

  • Improved CPU scalability.

  • Performance improvements for very large tables.

  • Reduced impact when creating indexes on production systems.

  • Much faster emergency maintenance commands.

  • Improved security features to prevent a breach. 

2ndQPostgres has enhanced versions of 9.4, 9.5 and 9.6. Binaries for minor releases are published periodically, so that the bug-fix level is always the same as or in advance of the quarterly maintenance releases from the PostgreSQL community. More detailed information is available for each specific release.
