Stolon is an Open Source project, developed in GO by Simone Gotti, Open Source Software Engineer and Architect, and Sorint.lab.
It is an innovative and cloud native PostgreSQL High Availability solution. It can be installed both standard and IaaS, (Aws, Google Cloud, …) environments and also in CaaS and PaaS environments like Kubernetes.
We created our own solution because the available ones weren’t simultaneously satisfying our primary requirements:
- Focus on data consistency
- Runs everywhere
- Native Cloud to be released in any environment
- Deploy in seconds
Stolon has a shared nothing architecture that takes advantage of PostgreSQL streaming replication (asynchronous or synchronous) and is resilient to any kind of partitioning avoiding the loss of transactions.
Sorint and Open Source
Stolon is one of the results of our passion for the Open Source world. The Sorint.OSS team, in addition to developing complete open-source solutions such as Stolon, offers consulting to:
- identify and integrate the Open Source solutions that best suit the customers’needs and infrastructure
- optimize performance
- proactively monitor the adopted solutions.
