Database vendor open sources Postgres-XL for scale-out workloads

May 13, 2014

A Summary: A new open-source project called Postgres-XL is pushing scale-out and MPP capabilities for the popular database. Postgres-XL is the product of a database vendor called TransLattice and is based on technology it acquired from StormDB in October. Database software company  TransLattice has rebuilt the popular PostgreSQL database as a clustered system designed for handling large datasets. The open-source product, called  Postgres-XL , is designed to be just like regular Postgres, only more scalable and also functional as a massively parallel analytic database. Postgres-XL is the fruit of TransLattice’s acquisition of a startup called StormDB in October . TransLattice’s primary product, a geographically distributed relational database called the TransLattice Elastic Database, is also based on Postgres. TransLattice Co-founder and CEO Frank Huerta told said that some of the capabilities of Postgres-XL — such as the analytic ones — will make their way the flagship database, but that the real goal of Postgres-XL is to build a community around the idea of scale-out Postgres. “Anything we can do to help base Postgres … we benefit from,” he said. Mason Sharp, the founder of StormDB and now TransLattice chief architect, said that apart from scalability, Postgres-XL provides a level of multi-tenant security beyond what standard Postgres offers. Postgres-XL is among a handful of recent attempts to turn Postgres into a more fully functional database. Platform-as-a-service provider Heroku (which is part of has been rolling out all sorts of new features for its Heroku Postgres service. Another database startup, Citus Data , has built a columnar store to Postgres for faster analytic queries, and has previously enabled Postgres users to query data stores such as Hadoop and MongoDB using SQL.
