Global Database as a Service

Managed PostgreSQL for the Cloud

Global Database as a Service (GDS) from 2ndQuadrant is a quick and easy deployment of PostgreSQL in the cloud. Using the best practices for PostgreSQL, GDS provides you with a highly available database bundled with 24/7 Support and an intuitive GUI for easy database management.

Database deployment can be cumbersome and error prone for those without the proper experience. Currently, the only option for cloud deployment of open source PostgreSQL is to do so manually - a process which is unpredictable and not repeatable. GDS, developed by 2ndQuadrant experts, ensures a smooth and successful deployment performed automatically with the touch of a button across as many servers as your business requires.

  • Cluster performance benchmarking
  • Easy addition and removal of clusters
