Benchmarking Managed PostgreSQL Cloud Solutions - Part Four: Microsoft Azure

The last in our four part series “Benchmarking Managed PostgreSQL Cloud Solution” this blog takes a close (and somewhat painful) look at Microsoft Azure and benchmark it for PostgreSQL using pgbench and sysbench.

How to Deploy PostgreSQL to a Docker Container Using ClusterControl

Deploying a single PostgreSQL instance on Docker is fairly easy, but deploying a replication cluster requires a bit more work. In this blog, we’ll see how to deploy PostgreSQL on Docker and how we can make it easier to configure a primary-standby replication setup with ClusterControl.

How to Use pgBackRest to Backup PostgreSQL and TimescaleDB

Managing backup environments can be complex, and, in case of failure, it’s important to reduce downtime and loss of data as much as possible. Full, differential and incremental backups are good options, they also help reduce the disk space usage. There are other important features like backup verification, uploading to remote systems or cloud, and compression, to complete our backup strategy. In this blog, we’ll see how we can use pgBackRest for backing up PostgreSQL and TimescaleDB and how we can manage all of these features from the same system.

Benchmarking Managed PostgreSQL Cloud Solutions - Part Three: Google Cloud

This blog performance benchmarks Google Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL 9.6.10 using pgbench and sysbench.

Performance Monitoring for TimescaleDB

Doing a performance monitoring in TimescaleDB is always a challenging task, especially for a very huge time-series data. ClusterControl offers a way to help a DBA or a developer to make things feasible and productive with the aid of the different features integrated within ClusterControl. Check out this blog as we showcases what are these and how you can leverage ClusterControl to monitor your TimescaleDB cluster.

Announcing ClusterControl 1.7.2: Improved PostgreSQL Backup & Support for TimescaleDB & MySQL 8.0

ClusterControl 1.7.2 includes support for TimescaleDB, MySQL 8.0 and Maxscale 2.2 as well as improved support for PostgreSQL monitoring & backups. It also launches two new features, CC Spotlight (a new search tool) and CMON HA (distributed fault-tolerant controllers).

How to Deploy Open Source Databases - New Whitepaper

Choosing which DB engine to use between all the options we have today is not an easy task. An that is just the beginning. After deciding which engine to use, you need to learn about it and actually deploy it to play with it. In this whitepaper we’ll show you how to install, configure and secure some of the most popular open source DB engines.

An Introduction to TimescaleDB

Time-series data is becoming more and more present, as we capture and analyze data at a faster rate. This increases the demand for complex queries and scalable database solutions. This blog provides a high-level overview of the new database system “TimescaleDB”, and a quick hands-on to get you going.

How to Deploy Highly Available PostgreSQL with Single Endpoint for WordPress

In this blog, we will learn how to setup Postgres in high availability mode, with a single endpoint for your WordPress service. We’ll also see how ClusterControl can help us manage the failover processes across database and load balancers.

Benchmarking Managed PostgreSQL Cloud Solutions - Part Two: Amazon RDS

This is part 2 in the series where we put different cloud providers head-to-head to see which one stands out. This blog is about benchmarking Amazon RDS using pgbench and sysbench and then comparing it to Amazon Aurora.
