06.12.2013 - New ’Carrier-Grade’ PostgreSQL Support Service Launched



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

2ndQuadrant has launched a ‘carrier-grade’ support service for companies who require absolute mission-critical incident protection.

The company has decided to offer this level of service commitment to support the rapidly growing adoption of PostgreSQL by enterprises requiring the highest level of support services.

This new service, branded Platinum Production Support, provides the additional reassurance of a guaranteed 15-minute (human) response time, 4-hour workaround, and a fix within 24 hours for PostgreSQL production databases. With 24/7 coverage included too.

2ndQuadrant has an excellent track record of recovering databases for companies of all sizes, having provided 24/7 production support for over 8 years. Simon Riggs, CTO of 2ndQuadrant, said, “More of our major clients from financial, telecoms and internet-based sectors are increasingly requiring extraordinary levels of up-time to avoid the potentially significant costs of downtime. With the rise in PostgreSQL databases at the heart of these mission-critical operations, we've launched this new service to ensure that organisations have the best support available, and equally to provide reassurance in their choice of database. The Platinum service complements our popular Gold service, providing clients—where every minute of downtime counts—with the reassurance they need.”

PostgreSQL is becoming a default choice for many leading corporations and public sector organisations, who can see the value in open source products and the benefits of reducing the costs of fee-based database licences. 2ndQuadrant’s launch of this level of support heralds new expectations of PostgreSQL, and helps dismiss the fears amongst the sceptics that an open source database might be a higher-risk choice.

Platinum Production Support is available now from 2ndQuadrant. Find out more at http://2ndQuadrant.com/support/

05.13.2013 - PostgreSQL 9.3 Beta 1 Released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The first beta release of PostgreSQL 9.3, the latest version of the world's best open source database, is now available. This beta contains previews of all of the features which will be available in version 9.3, and is ready for testing by the worldwide PostgreSQL community. Please download, test, and report what you find.

Major Features

The major features available for testing in this beta include:

  • Writeable Foreign Tables, enabling pushing data to other databases
  • pgsql_fdw driver for federation of PostgreSQL databases
  • Automatically updatable VIEWs
  • MATERIALIZED VIEW declaration
  • LATERAL JOINs
  • Additional JSON constructor and extractor functions
  • Indexed regular expression search
  • Disk page checksums to detect filesystem failures

In 9.3, PostgreSQL has greatly reduced its requirement for SysV shared memory, changing to mmap(). This allows easier installation and configuration of PostgreSQL, but means that we need our users to rigorously test and ensure that no memory management issues have been introduced by the change. We also request that users spend extra time testing the improvements to Foreign Key locks.

Additional Features

Additional features included in this release are:

  • Fast failover to replicas for high availability
  • Streaming-only remastering of replicas
  • Performance and locking improvements for Foreign Key locks
  • Parallel pg_dump for faster backups
  • Directories for configuration files
  • pg_isready database connection checker
  • COPY FREEZE for reduced IO bulk loading
  • User-defined background workers for automating database tasks
  • Recursive view declaration
  • lock_timeout directive

For a full listing of the features in version 9.3 Beta, please see the release notes. Additional descriptions and notes on the new features are available on the 9.3 Features Wiki Page.

Test 9.3 Beta 1 Now

We depend on our community to help test the next version in order to guarantee that it is high-performance and bug-free. Please download PostgreSQL 9.3 Beta 1 and try it with your workloads and applications as soon as you can, and give feedback to the PostgreSQL developers. Features and APIs in Beta 1 will not change substantially before final release, so it is now safe to start building applications against the new features. More information on how to test and report issues

Get the PostgreSQL 9.3 Beta 1, including binaries and installers for Windows, Linux and Mac from our download page.

Full documentation of the new version is available online, and also installs with PostgreSQL.

AXLE aims to make these improvements generally available through high quality open source implementations via the PostgreSQL database and Orange data visualisation and data mining tools.

AXLE project members are

Areas of research will include data analysis algorithms for Big Data, advanced hardware architectures, data visualisation and security. Target environments are real-world data in the 10-100 TB range.

"Real world data needs good security too, so we'll be making sure we have high grade security that works well even with high performance requirements", says Simon Riggs, CTO of 2ndQuadrant and Principal Investigator for the AXLE project. "We're very happy that the European Union has recognised the potential of the PostgreSQL database to provide effective database analytics for a broad range of business, research and public services."

First deliverables from the project will be submitted to PostgreSQL version 9.4, available in 2014 and will continue in later releases.

Project updates will be available regularly here as work continues.

04.10.2013 - Ora2PG 11 : Faster Oracle to PostgreSQL Migrations



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

Paris, April 9th 2013

Dalibo is proud to announce the release of Ora2Pg 11.1. This major release adds support to multiprocessing so that you can now export data in parallel mode. Importing data from an Oracle database is now ten times faster. With this new feature, Ora2Pg performances are closer to the ones you'd get with any ETL.

Since 2001, Ora2Pg is the best solution to migrate data from Oracle to PostgreSQL and is used by thousands of companies around the world to switch from the most expensive proprietary RDBMS to the most advanced Open Source RDBMS!

Ora2pg 11.1 also brings important improvements :

  • You can now generate XML transformation files for Kettle (see http://kettle.pentaho.com/).
  • Faster scan of Oracle databases containing huge number of objects.
  • Faster partition data export with direct import to tables partition.
  • Bug fixes on RAW or LONG RAW data export.
  • PL/SQL to PL/PGSQL code rewrite.

Gilles Darold, the project leader and main developer of Ora2Pg, explains: "The development of ora2pg is really fast because more and more companies are moving from Oracle to PostgreSQL. This new version brings speed improvements to migrate multi-terabyte databases faster. For most users, lowering the migration time is critical because it means less downtime during the switch from Oracle to PostgreSQL."

These performance enhancements were developed by Dalibo in collaboration with Photobox, Europe's largest online photo processing service and Bouygues Telecom, a major mobile network operator and ISP in France.

Dalibo would like to thank the developers who submitted patches and the users who reported bugs and feature requests, especially : Dominique Fourdrinoy, Ludovic Penet, Thomas Ogrisegg, Alex Delianis, Pierre-Marie Petit and mrojasaquino. Ora2Pg is an open project. Any contribution to build a better tool is welcomed. You just have to send your ideas, features requests, or patches using the GitHub tools at https://github.com/darold/ora2pg.

04.04.2013 - PostgreSQL 9.2.4, 9.1.9, 9.0.13 and 8.4.17 released



View PostgreSQL-Press related news.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group has released a security update to all current versions of the PostgreSQL database system, including versions 9.2.4, 9.1.9, 9.0.13, and 8.4.17. This update fixes a high-exposure security vulnerability in versions 9.0 and later. All users of the affected versions are strongly urged to apply the update immediately.

A major security issue fixed in this release, CVE-2013-1899, makes it possible for a connection request containing a database name that begins with "-" to be crafted that can damage or destroy files within a server's data directory. Anyone with access to the port the PostgreSQL server listens on can initiate this request. This issue was discovered by Mitsumasa Kondo and Kyotaro Horiguchi of NTT Open Source Software Center.

Two lesser security fixes are also included in this release: CVE-2013-1900, wherein random numbers generated by contrib/pgcrypto functions may be easy for another database user to guess, and CVE-2013-1901, which mistakenly allows an unprivileged user to run commands that could interfere with in-progress backups. Finally, this release fixes two security issues with the graphical installers for Linux and Mac OS X: insecure passing of superuser passwords to a script, CVE-2013-1903 and the use of predictable filenames in /tmp CVE-2013-1902. Marko Kreen, Noah Misch and Stefan Kaltenbrunner reported these issues, respectively.

We are grateful for each developer's efforts in making PostgreSQL more secure.

This release also corrects several errors in management of GiST indexes. After installing this update, it is advisable to REINDEX any GiST indexes that meet one or more of the conditions described below.

This update release also contains fixes for many minor issues discovered and patched by the PostgreSQL community in the last two months, including:

  • Fix GiST indexes to not use "fuzzy" geometric comparisons for box, polygon, circle, and point columns
  • Fix bugs in contrib/btree_gist for GiST indexes on text, bytea, bit, and numeric columns
  • Fix bugs in page splitting code for multi-column GiST indexes
  • Fix buffer leak in WAL replay causing "incorrect local pin count" errors
  • Ensure crash recovery before entering archive recovery during unclean shutdown when recovery.conf is present
  • Avoid deleting not-yet-archived WAL files during crash recovery
  • Fix race condition in DELETE RETURNING
  • Fix possible planner crash after adding columns to a view depending on another view
  • Eliminate memory leaks in PL/Perl's spi_prepare() function
  • Fix pg_dumpall to handle database names containing "=" correctly
  • Avoid crash in pg_dump when an incorrect connection string is given
  • Ignore invalid indexes in pg_dump and pg_upgrade
  • Include only the current server version's subdirectory when backing up a tablespace with pg_basebackup
  • Add a server version check in pg_basebackup and pg_receivexlog
  • Fix contrib/dblink to handle inconsistent settings of DateStyle or IntervalStyle safely
  • Fix contrib/pg_trgm's similarity() function to return zero for trigram-less strings
  • Enable building PostgreSQL with Microsoft Visual Studio 2012
  • Update time zone data files for DST law changes in Chile, Haiti, Morocco, Paraguay, and some Russian areas

As always, update releases only require installation of packages and a database system restart. You do not need to dump/restore or use pg_upgrade for this update release. Users who have skipped multiple update releases may need to perform additional, post-update steps; see the Release Notes for details.
