Fujitsu Enterprise Postgres, since its inception, has been committed to enterprise-grade security, performance, and reliability. As a mission-critical database system offering, Fujitsu Enterprise Postgres extends PostgreSQL to meet today’s ICT landscape, as well as supporting customers' deployment on multi/hybrid cloud architecture consisting of systems running on-premises, cloud, and edge platforms.
As data management and utilization diversifies and organizations move towards a data-driven operation, the significance of security threats such as data leaks and server attacks increase.
Fujitsu has always put security first as one of our key principles, as you can see from the security features we include in our licenses without extra cost, such as Transparent data Encryption and Dedicated Audit Log. In our latest version 15 SP1, Fujitsu brings capabilities to better facilitate the integration of PostgreSQL database systems to your organizational policies and existing ICT ecosystem. Our operator offering is enhanced with more robustness, quick deployment templates, and added automation.
Below is a brief description of some of the new features introduced.
Policy-based password operation
When password authentication is used as client authentication when connecting to a database, the database administrator can force database users to use passwords based on predefined security policies. If a database user's password usage does not comply with the predetermined policy, the connection to the database will be denied or a password change is forced. Restrictions on password authentication take effect by applying a defined profile to a database user. This capability enhances compliance by enforcing password operations in line with your organization's policies. This functionality also prevents unauthorized logins and hardens system security, by locking accounts for users who consecutively fail to log in.
Fujitsu Enterprise Postgres supports pgBackRest as the backup management utility. This OSS tool is used widely along with PostgreSQL to setup and perform regular backups and manage backup generations. By defining different backup plans for multiple backup repositories, you can optimize disaster preparedness while keeping an eye on your budget.
All OSS tools that are packaged in Fujitsu Enterprise Postgres are supported by Fujitsu at enterprise level SLA at no extra cost.
Fujitsu Enterprise Postgres Operator new capabilities
Below are 3 new capabilities added to our operator offering, to enhance the resilience and speed in a containerized environment that today’s business applications demand.
Disaster recovery for hot standby configurations
Hot standby configurations are now available for containerized environments. This will help you to achieve faster recovery time in case of a disaster and supports compliance to your organizational policies around disaster recovery.
Set up a DR cluster with streaming replication or continuous recovery via an object storage.
Additional CR templates for quick start
In previous versions, Fujitsu Enterprise Postgres for Kubernetes came with a default template for a small-scale configuration. Since production deployments often require relevant sizing, the product now comes with 2 additional templates designed based on our model cases.
The templates are available for download, and you can tune them for a better fit if needed.
Disk depletion monitoring and expansion
Disk usage monitoring is now available. PVC size capacity can be increased automatically according to the configured threshold and expansion size for each occurrence of disk expansion.
Alternatively, for systems without reserve capacity in the storage for automatic expansion, manual operations can be conducted to either increase the PVC size in the cluster configuration or to migrate to clusters with sufficient disk space upon receiving an alert.
We keep your data safe
The release of Fujitsu Enterprise Postgres 15 SP1 is another milestone in our continued commitment to protecting data, with the addition of key security features in a hybrid multi-cloud product that delivers enhanced performance, availability, and portability to meet the needs of critical business environments.
