2ndQuadrant Selected by Think Research for PostgreSQL Database Migration and Support Services

Cutting-edge healthcare technology company partners with 2ndQuadrant for migration to open source PostgreSQL

2ndQuadrant — the Gold Standard for PostgreSQL products & services — today announced that their team of experts were chosen by Think Research, leading healthcare technology company in North America, for a full database migration to open source PostgreSQL from a proprietary fork; followed by continued 24/7 Production Support, and Remote DBA services.

Think Research develops knowledge-based tools which empower clinicians to deliver the best evidence-based care, thereby driving a better outcome for patients. Think Research connects clinicians, facilities, and entire health care systems, with the highest quality clinical content and the technologies to put it into practice.

Think Research originally deployed a proprietary fork of PostgreSQL as a solution to their integrated data management needs. However, soon after the implementation, management recognized the limitations of vendor lock-in; most prominently the upgrade complications endured due to lack of binary compatibility with open source PostgreSQL. Without binary compatibility, it became impossible for Think Research to upgrade to the latest version of PostgreSQL according to their upgrade schedule, as they were dependent on the vendor’s release cycle.

"Working with 2ndQuadrant allowed the team time to focus on our strategic database initiatives while their Remote DBA services delivered the planned operational changes all the while maintaining our highly secure & available system."

Think Research reached out to 2ndQuadrant, after receiving a strong recommendation, to help migrate their database away from the proprietary fork. 2ndQuadrant consultants worked closely with Think Research to examine their database environment and suggest a migration & upgrade plan that would reliably move them to open source PostgreSQL. Before the migration could take place, 2ndQuadrant’s consultants also performed a supportability and architectural health check.

In addition to consultancy and migration services, 2ndQuadrant initiated a long-term partnership with Think Research by providing 24/7 Production Support and Remote DBA services.

“Working with 2ndQuadrant allowed the team time to focus on our strategic database initiatives while their Remote DBA services delivered the planned operational changes all the while maintaining our highly secure & available system,” said Darace Rose, CIO & Vice President of Information Technology at Think Research.
