|Description of customisation||
EDB Postgres Enterprise is built around EDB Postgres Advanced Server - enhanced version of PostgresSQL that adds additional security, performance tools, Developer productivity tools, DBA productivity tools and Oracle compatibility.
The database is bundled with management, monitoring, tuning, high availability, disaster recovery, replication and migration tools to customize the adoption of Postgres in large enterprises with mission critical applications to specific requirements.
The database and tools is designed to be deployed in any cloud infrastructure of choice. The database can be customised to address all varieties of applications including transaction oriented, read mostly/only, mixed or specialized for document or key-value processing.
A wide variety of extensions can be added to the database to give it additional capabilities such as best in class geo-spatial processing, logical replication, backup and restore capabilities and more. The database includes a replication tool that can exchange data with other Postgres, Oracle, and SQL Server databases. Additional data adapters connect to MongoDB, MySQL and Hadoop data allowing for custom integrations of data throughout the enterprise for 360 degree views of key data sets.
|Independence of resources||The EDB Postgres solution sits within the buyers cloud infrastructure of choice. All cloud instances for EDB solutions are private instances and respect the isolation and processing independence such instances are afforded by the cloud infrastructure provider. EDB Postgres instances are not shared with other users outside of those authorized by the buyer.|

|Approach to resilience||The EDB Postgres solution sits within the buyers infrastructure of choice. Resilience is controlled by their own network resilience and software configuration as well as by the resilience of the infrastructure of their cloud provider of choice. Database resilience is enhanced with clustered implementations using EDB Postgres tools.|
|Outage reporting||In addition to any infrastructure outage reporting by the cloud provider, the EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager (PEM) is included and may be deployed by the buyer in the cloud infrastructure of their choice. PEM provides over 100 ready to run monitoring probes that can utilize SMTP or SNMP to alert operations staff of out of bounds conditions. PEM has a sophisticated graphical user interface with pre-defined and customizable at-a-glance dashboards to monitor large scale Postgres installations.|
