Faster page load times for better customer experiences and fewer lost sales

Leading e-commerce companies know that a smooth and compelling customer experience with fast page load times are essential to driving higher sales and improved customer retention. Additionally, international customers and/or regulatory authorities have data residency requirements mandating that data generated by citizens in a certain country or region be stored there.

Place data close to your users

Reducing data latency is key to significantly reducing page load times.  Standard monolithic database architectures that centralize the database in a single cloud region or data center cause e-commerce applications to suffer from significant data latency issues. Each roundtrip request to the database (or the application logic that accesses it) can take hundreds of milliseconds. The solution is to place data closer to your users with pgEdge.


High availability comes built-in

Thanks to the multi-active (multi-master) distributed architecture of pgEdge solid failover and disaster recovery capabilities come built-in.   With multiple active nodes in a pgEdge cluster you are protected from software failures and network outages.  No more explaining outages to your boss or board because your cloud provider is down in the single region you are using. And did we mention zero downtime for maintenance?

Solving for data residency

The data residency features of pgEdge allow for “geo-sharding” of the database, so locally generated data (PII and customer orders) stays local while other data is shared globally (like a product catalog).  This means you can meet data residency requirements without costly application code changes since table replication control happens at the schema level.  

Contact a pgEdge Solutions Architect to discuss a pgEdge distributed database architecture that works for your use case.

Example: Large retail company


  • Poor customer experience and lost sales due to slow page load times caused by data latency

  • No disaster recovery or failover strategy due to outdated monolithic architecture


  • pgEdge Distributed PostgreSQL database, via pgEdge Cloud or pgEdge Platform


  • Page load times decreased up to 90% depending on user location

  • Multi-active, multi-region architecture provides built-in disaster recovery and failover
