PostgreSQL Update & Upgrade

AN UPGRADE FOR YOUR POSTGRESQL DATABASE

The upgrade from an outdated PostgreSQL version to the latest one poses great challenges as well as resource bottlenecks for many companies, but brings advantages in terms of new features, bug fixes and improved security. CYBERTEC can assist you in performing updates and upgrades – also during non-working hours – in order to avoid interruptions in your business operations.

Whether your goal is to develop a strategy for future updates & upgrades, or whether you want us to handle the actual upgrade for you, our consultants can help in both cases and will ensure a smooth and seamless transition to the new PostgreSQL version. Furthermore, our PostgreSQL experts can support you in choosing the upgrade method that is most suitable for your requirements.

Our team can assist you with:

  • Development of an appropriate update strategy
  • Choice of the upgrading technique
  • Upgrade with minimal downtime

THE ADVANTAGES OF UPGRADING

Security

Database security is especially important, since databases are very vulnerable when it comes to cyber-attacks. New PostgreSQL versions usually come with updated security features: both new and modern authentication methods and SSL/TLS version support are regularly added. Clearly only those who use new PostgreSQL versions benefit from new security features.

Performance

Each new PostgreSQL version brings performance improvements and makes your queries even faster. From a performance point of view, an upgrade pays off in any case.  We have not seen a case in the last few years where a new PostgreSQL version had a negative impact on query performance.

New Features

With every release, new features are implemented that are beneficial for both developers and DBA’s. With these features, new improvements can be achieved and problems that previously required a complex solution are now simplified
