What can you achieve with PostgreSQL?

PostgreSQL is one of the most popular databases. Its popularity is rooted in its sound architectural foundations that make it a good fit for several use cases:

Web and mobile applications

PostgreSQL is a solid choice for e-commerce and content sharing platforms.

Data warehousing and Business Intelligence applications

PostgreSQL is famous for its excellent support of the SQL standard. It also supports a large panel of index types and can nicely integrate with other data stores (using foreign wrappers) making it an excellent choice for running analytical queries without the need to duplicate your data.

Applications managing geospatial data

The PostGis extension of PostgreSQL is an excellent choice to support use cases managing spatial data.

FinOps and banking

PostgreSQL provides the transactional ACID guarantees and the mature replication capabilities that finance systems need. The pgAudit extension can also complement PostgreSQL with the auditing capabilities that regulated industries require.

Text search use cases

PostgreSQL offers a variety of index structures (e.g. GIN and GIST) to perform advanced full text search operations on your data without the need for duplicating it or compromising on its consistency.

Hardened and supported software packages

We provide 10 years maintenance for our PostgreSQL related artefacts in the format of your choice:

You can also get 24/7 support with optional screen sharing for all your PostgreSQL deployments.

How it works

The diagram below depicts a high level overview on the components we use:

Key architecture insights:

  • We use Patroni to manage the high availability of PostgreSQL.
  • We use PgBouncer to provide connection pooling and transparent failovers for the connected applications.
  • We expose two endpoints. One for read and write operations on the primary, and another one to scale reads on the replicas.
  • We can backup our deployments to any S3 compatible storage solution.
  • We provide a full monitoring and alerting solution based on Prometheus, Loki and Grafana.
