This eBook offers a practical hands-on guide to “Day One” challenges of deploying, managing and monitoring PostgreSQL.
With the ongoing shift towards open-source database solutions, it’s no surprise that PostgreSQL is the fastest growing database. While it’s tempting to simply compare the licensing costs of proprietary systems against that of open source, it is both a misleading and incorrect approach when evaluating the potential for return on investment of a database technology migration.
An effective monitoring and logging strategy is critical for maintaining the reliability, availability, and performance of database environments.
The second section of this eBook provides a detailed analysis of all aspects of monitoring and logging PostgreSQL:
? Monitoring KPIs
? Metrics and stats
? Monitoring tools
? Passive monitoring versus active notifications
Web apps once thought impossible due to scale, complexity, or because they simply couldn’t be imagined, are now a reality with the cloud. In this guide, we’ve explored the Azure App Service and highlighted Azure’s support for platform as a service (PaaS).
We’ve shown you how you can take an existing website backed by a SQL Server database and move it to the cloud. You’ve seen how you can easily add features such as identity management and caching to your web app. You’ve also learned that you can enable rich application monitoring with a few clicks.

Databases are the primary target of cyber criminals and disgruntled insiders. Traditional perimeter, network security, and built-in database security measures, offer limited protection when it comes to securing the organization’s most sensitive data.
HIPAA and HITECH require individually identifiable protected health information (PHI) be secured. The unfortunate reality for IT professionals is that these acts of Congress aren't prescriptive regarding what needs to be done about computer systems.
Recent surveys of IT managers revealed two commonly held beliefs: database regulations are the most challenging to comply with, and of all regulatory standards, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) the toughest.
Databases store companies’ most valuable information assets, but in most cases they’re poorly protected. It’s important to secure databases as well as or better than other systems in the enterprise. But it’s not that simple.
McAfee® Database Activity Monitoring automatically finds databases on your network, protects them with preconfigured defenses, and helps you build a custom security policy for your environment making it easier to demonstrate compliance to auditors.
Compliance does not automatically equate to security. A company may be compliant with a host of regulatory requirements, while its databases remain exposed and vulnerable. Learn how McAfee Database Security can help prevent such vulnerabilities.
McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Database delivers all the capabilities needed to secure your databases for reliable SOX compliance, with minimal impact on system performance or the productivity of your IT organization.
