Postgres-BDR has now reached 1.0 production status.
Over the last 2 years, Postgres-BDR has been used daily for mission critical production systems.
As you might imagine, it’s been improved by both bug fixes and feature enhancements that allow it to be used smoothly, so its mature, robust and feature-rich.
The BDR Project introduced logical replication for PostgreSQL, now available as pglogical. In addition, it introduced replication slots, background workers and many other features. But is it still relevant?
Postgres-BDR delivers all of these features that aren’t yet in PostgreSQL 9.6, and likely won’t all be in PostgreSQL 10.0 either
- Automatic replication of DDL, reducing maintenance costs for DBAs
- Automatic replication of sequences
- Conflict resolution and logging
