What is pgEdge?
Fully distributed PostgreSQL, optimized for the network edge.
Fully distributed. Almost magical.
Faster response times and ultra-high availability, made easy.
pgEdge is fully distributed PostgreSQL DB, optimized for the network edge and deployable across multiple cloud regions or data centers. A true multi-master (active-active) distributed database system allowing read and write operations at any node on the network. It seems almost magical, but means greatly reduced data latency, better customer experiences, ultra high availability, and addressing data residency. Typically without any code changes.
Fully distributed and fully Postgres
pgEdge allows both read and write operations to take place at any database node in a geographically distributed cluster. Each node runs standard Postgres (v15, v16), and a cluster can span multiple cloud regions or data centers. pgEdge nodes are loosely coupled, and are kept updated via asynchronous logical replication with conflict resolution.
Configurable conflict resolution and avoidance
A configurable conflict resolution algorithm resolves data conflicts when transactions at different nodes update the same data at the same time. pgEdge also employs delta conflict avoidance to maintain consistency for data fields that keep running sums like financial balances or inventory counts.
Experience the magic
Low data latency
Place copies of your database close to your users, greatly reducing the latency of long round-trip response times to a single database instance. When a compelling customer experience with short page load times is essential, deploying pgEdge is a game changer.Learn More
If one or more nodes go down traffic immediately fails over to the remaining active nodes. pgEdge makes it easier to architect and deploy a high availability solution for failover between cloud regions: no more saying "sorry, our cloud provider's eastern region is down". And the best part: zero downtime for maintenance.Learn more
Multi-Master (Active-Active) Distributed
multi-master (active-active) distributed Postgres allows you to have multiple master (active-active) databases spread across different locations (multiple nodes), each capable of handling read and write traffic simultaneously, allowing for better performance and high availability of your applications.Learn more
Meet data residency requirements
International regulations and/or customers require data generated in a certain country or region stay there. With pgEdge you control which tables are globally replicated, and which stay local. Geographic sharding, or "geo-sharding", breaks out tables on a location field. Global data is shared globally, while local data stays local.Learn more
Geo-sharding also supports geographic scale-out of applications, particularly when Postgres workloads threaten to exceed available compute capacity.Learn more
JAMStack friendly for modern applications
For modern web application developers using the JAMStack architecture, pgEdge works well with edge development platforms from Cloudflare, Fastly, Vercel and others. These platforms make it easy for developers to put presentation and compute close to users - now you can put databases at or near the edge. essential, deploying pgEdge is a game changer.Learn more
What makes pgEdge different?
Based on standard PostgresNo “almost but not quite” compatibility issues and no vendor lock-in. Existing Postgres applications and tooling run without code changes. Leverage all the enterprise-class features Postgres is known for.
100% openpgEdge extensions are standard Postgres extensions and available as open source with the pgEdge Community License. No proprietary code, no vendor lock-in.
150+ years Postgres experienceBenefit from decades of experience helping make Postgres the most enterprise-hardened open source database. We’ve also helped run the largest Postgres services in the cloud.
