PostgreSQL Replication and upcoming Logical Replication Improvements in PostgreSQL 16

published on 2023/05/09

This blog is the first of a series discussing the future of logical replication. In this post, I’ll focus on the improvements the community has added to logical replication for PostgreSQL 16. The next post will describe the in-flight PostgreSQL 16 logical replication improvements (those changes that are in progress, but not yet committed). The last post in the series will delve into a new PostgreSQL extension for logical replication called Spock. Spock is a replication solution recently released by pgEdge that leverages both the pgLogical and BDR2 open-source projects as a solid foundation for this enterprise-class extension. Please visit our official site to learn more about pgEdge and Spock.
