Announcing support for multiple Postgres versions in pgEdge, along with zero downtime upgrades!
Today we are announcing support for multiple Postgres versions in pgEdge Distributed PostgreSQL, including the recently released PostgreSQL 16 Beta 1.
pgEdge currently supports PostgreSQL versions 16 beta 1, 15.3 and 14.8 (on request) across both the pgEdge Cloud managed cloud service and the self-hosted and self-managed pgEdge Platform product. Support for subsequent PostgreSQL 16 beta releases and the final stable release will be added shortly after they are made available.
With pgEdge Distributed PostgreSQL it is possible to run different versions of Postgres across a cluster. pgEdge also now supports rolling upgrades across a cluster, whereby an individual node is taken offline, upgraded, and then added back to the cluster. This makes it possible to accomplish zero downtime maintenance, a requirement for applications that must reach very high levels of availability.
We are very excited to add early support for Postgres 16 while delivering the ability to achieve zero downtime maintenance for Postgres version upgrades. And we will be hosting a related webinar on “Logical Replication features in PostgreSQL 16” on Wednesday June 28 at 11AM EDT. To learn more and register, visit https://pages.pgedge.com/postgres16-webinar.
Postgres 16 brings a number of great new features to logical replication, and we are looking closely at them to determine how best to leverage them within pgEdge Distributed PostgreSQL. We will likely have more to say about this at a later time.
In the meantime, if you are yet to check out pgEdge and have interest in use cases like zero downtime maintenance, ultra high availability and data residency, you can sign up for access to pgEdge Cloud or download the self-hosted pgEdge Platform.
