Oxford, United Kingdom, July 13, 2017 (Newswire.com) - 2ndQuadrant, the Gold Standard in PostgreSQL Products & Support, announces the launch of a case study detailing how they provided Postgres-BDR - Multi-Master Replication for PostgreSQL - to Animal Logic, one of the world’s most creative digital studios with box office hits including Happy Feet, Iron Man 2 and The LEGO® Movie.
Postgres-BDR is the first open source multi-master replication system for PostgreSQL to reach full production-ready status. Developed by 2ndQuadrant, BDR is specifically designed for use in geographically distributed clusters, using highly efficient asynchronous logical replication, supporting anything from 2 to more than 48 nodes in a distributed database.
Just like being able to phone a friend, it's reassuring to know we can put a ticket into 2ndQuadrant at anytime. Depending on where we are in the production cycle, one day of outage could cost us $0.5million. That simply can't happen.
Justen Marshall, Software Development Manager at Animal Logic
Animal Logic runs a custom production workflow system across two studios on two different continents. The team approached 2ndQuadrant because of their highly competent, Platinum status reputation. 2ndQuadrant was able to provide the expertise needed to complete the job, confirming that Postgres-BDR was the perfect solution fully encompassing Animal Logic’s technical requirements.
2ndQuadrant’s CTO, Simon Riggs, commented:
“Working with our customers across the globe, we realized that there was a need for PostgreSQL to support multiple master nodes to provide our clients the scalability they needed. That’s when we started working on a solution that later became known as Postgres-BDR. When we encounter a problem, we don’t just wait for someone to fix it - we take the lead and fix it for the global user base.”
2ndQuadrant was founded in 2001 by Simon Riggs, a major developer, and committer of the PostgreSQL project. The team of experts has since continued to grow, bringing relevant industry expertise in a wide range of areas to form the largest single collective organization of PostgreSQL experts of any company globally. Comprised of some of the best-known developers from around the globe, all members still actively contribute to the development of PostgreSQL.
