Clustering, High Availability and Replication

Transitiv can help you design and implement High Availability and Replication solutions for your critical PostgreSQL databases. Using various open source technologies, including: PostgreSQL Streaming Replication, DRBD, Londisite and Pacemaker to create available and durable solutions. PostgreSQL's Streaming Replication offers a mature and robust solution for replicating data between two PostgreSQL servers, ensuring you don't loose important data. PostgreSQL's hot standby functionality allows the slave PostgreSQL server to take over at a moments notice or be used to scale.

Database Design and Development

Transitiv has extensive experience of database design and development with PostgreSQL. We can offer you advice over schema design and can assist you during development.


Transitiv has experience in scaling PostgreSQL systems using a range of techniques. Replication combined with load balancing is a simple and effective method of scaling PostgreSQL in read heavy environments. For more complex environments PL/Proxy can be used to provide vertical and horizontal scaling of applications.


With our expert knowledge of both PostgreSQL and Nagios, Transitiv are well placed to assist you in monitoring your PostgreSQL servers. We have developed a number of Nagios checks for monitoring replication and more.
