PostgreSQL: All content tagged as PostgreSQL in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
While the offer is clear and valuable in itself:
- 99.99% uptime
- 99.999999999% (eleven nines) durability
- read-only asynchronous replicas
- database cloning
I’ve been reading all posts about the announcement looking for the answer to the most obvious question: why would you use Heroku’s Postgres service from outside the Heroku platform?
As far as I can tell:
- the network latency will be significant
- network partitions will occur (more often than having both you application and data in the same DC)
- transfer costs will be significant
So what is the answer?

Not much information available yet on the project page but looks like bidirectional integration of PosgreSQL and Hadoop.
The Postgres Plus Connector for Hadoop provides developers easy access to massive amounts of SQL data for integration with or analysis in Hadoop processing clusters. Now large amounts of data managed by PostgreSQL or Postgres Plus Advanced Server can be accessed by Hadoop for analysis and manipulation using Map-Reduce constructs.
When speaking about PostgreSQL and Hadoop, the first thing that comes to my mind is Daniel Abadi’s HadoopDB that became not long ago the technology behind his startup which has already raised $9.5mil.
