Instaclustr for PostgreSQL launched

Open-source software company Instaclustr has announced the general availability of relational database software PostgreSQL on its platform.

Instaclustr for PostgreSQL is built to eliminate the costly overheads and risks associated with the internal operation of Postgres clusters at scale.

Postgres has been described as the world’s leading object-relational database system, favoured for its ease of entry. But the database becomes considerably more complex to manage at scale, requiring continuous optimisation to maintain performance, security, cost-efficiency and availability.

With Instaclustr for PostgreSQL, organisations can implement production-ready Postgres clusters in minutes. The solution delivers PostgreSQL in its 100% open-source version.

Instaclustr Chief Product Officer Ben Slater said Postgres joins the open-source solutions Apache Cassandra, Redis, Apache Kafka and Open Search on the Instaclustr platform.

“PostgreSQL is a natural addition to the Instaclustr platform, as we continue to expand the data infrastructure ecosystem that we operate and support on behalf of our customers. Postgres is the world’s most popular object-relational database, it is incredibly powerful as a fully open-source technology, and it requires specialised expertise to wield optimally in enterprise environments — allowing us to provide meaningful value,” he said.

“From avoiding the costs and technical complexity of self-management, to ensuring security, to enabling enterprise focus on building applications and innovation, we’re excited to introduce customers to the many reasons why Instaclustr for PostgreSQL is the best strategy for operating this powerful solution.”
