Starting today, Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL supports the pglogical extension. pglogical is an open source PostgreSQL extension that helps customers replicate data between independent Aurora PostgreSQL databases while maintaining consistent read-write access and a mix of private and common data in each database. Amazon Aurora pglogical uses logical replication to copy data changes between independent Aurora PostgreSQL databases, optionally resolving conflicts based on standard algorithms. Customers can enable pglogical from within their Aurora PostgreSQL instances, and pay only for the additional clusters and cross-region traffic needed, with no upfront costs or software purchases required. Fully integrated, pglogical requires no triggers or external programs. This alternative to physical replication is a highly efficient method of replicating data using a publish/subscribe model for selective replication.
