Performing a PostgreSQL Upgrade for a large or high-volume database using logical replication can minimize downtime to almost zero. The PostgreSQL engineers at 2ndQuadrant developed the code for logical replication, which forms the basis of the popular PostgreSQL extension, pglogical.
pglogical is a logical replication system implemented entirely as a PostgreSQL extension. Fully integrated, it requires no triggers or external programs. This alternative to physical replication is a highly efficient method of replicating data using a publish/subscribe model for selective replication.With first-hand knowledge of the code-base, 2ndQuadrant is able to help upgrade your current PostgreSQL database with almost zero downtime.
Leading Polar & Marine Research Institution Upgrades to Highly Efficient Database Infrastructure
Internationally recognized institute known for expertise in polar and marine research, AWI, invested in various PostgreSQL versions and operating systems for their applications. 2ndQuadrant helped AWI set up a homogenous PostgreSQL and OS versions environment with a standardized backup plan to better operate in a variety of polar and marine research stations, which are constantly collecting an enormous amount of data.
