PostgreSQL on RDS

PostgreSQL, also known as Postgres, is a free and open-source relational database management system emphasizing extensibility and SQL compliance. Deployed on RDS makes it easier to manage. Streamkap can connect to PostgreSQL by connecting to a replication slot, which in turn looks at PostgreSQL publications. By reading the PostgreSQL change logs, real-time change data capture has less impact on your database while allowing you to sync your data in real-time to support your use cases.

  • Uses Change Data Capture (CDC) to read data from PostgreSQL replication slot
  • Snapshot/Backfill historical data before moving to streaming
  • Can include/exclude table/columns
  • Schema evolution support for supported destinations
  • Setup PostgreSQL change data capture in minutes
