Dingo PostgreSQL™ for PCF

Highly-Available PostgreSQL Clusters with Built-In Disaster Recovery

Nearly all applications running on Pivotal Cloud Foundry® require either a SQL database, a NoSQL/JSON database, or both. The best open source database for both use cases is PostgreSQL. Each service instance is a dedicated database cluster providing both application user as well as superuser access. This makes it easy to manage loaded extensions and other superuser-only features while ensuring that applications operate with appropriate permissions.

Fast, Complete Data Recovery

Recoverable archives built into every service instance database makes it easy to retrieve lost data.

Maintain High Availability

Every service instance database is deployed as a highly-available PostgreSQL cluster, so the service always stays up and running.

Ensure Robust Security

Each service instance database has it’s own dedicated, secure Docker container, meaning data is always safe and secure.

“Dingo PostgreSQL’s DR feature saved our business. We were able to recover from a complete disaster with no loss of customer data. Without Dingo PostgreSQL, the recovery process would have been exceedingly painful and time consuming. It would have extended downtime to unacceptable lengths and we would have lost some customer data as well as customers because of it.”


How it Works

Dingo PostgreSQL is a BOSH deployed service that integrates with Pivotal Cloud Foundry via a service broker as a tile in the PivNet marketplace. It requires integration with an object store with an AWS S3 compatible API.
