Deliver better customer experiences while reducing risk and costs

Fast growing SaaS companies are under constant pressure to deliver new features to customers and maintain a superior user experience, all with limited engineering resources. Considerations like high availability – being able to withstand a cloud provider regional outage for instance – often don’t get sufficient attention. 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.

High availability comes built-in

Thanks to the multi-master (active-active) 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 and geographic scale-out

The data residency features of pgEdge allow for “geo-sharding” of the database, so locally generated data such as PII stays local while other data is shared globally. This means you can meet data residency requirements without costly application code changes since table replication control happens at the schema level. These same geo-sharding features also support geographic scale-out in cases where a monolithic database architecture is hitting up against performance limits.

Place data close to your users

As a SaaS application becomes more complex, page load times tend to go up and customer satisfaction goes down. 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.  

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

Example: Mid-size SaaS Company


  • No disaster recovery or failover strategy due to outdated monolithic architecture

  • Need to address customer and/or regulatory requirements for data residency without costly application changes


  • pgEdge Distributed PostgreSQL database


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

  • Data residency compliance achieved allowing for increased international sales
