Bridging Data Silos and Accelerating Insights

In today’s data-driven world, organizations often grapple with data residing in multiple, disparate databases. This fragmentation can hinder seamless analysis and decision-making. However, PostgreSQL offers a powerful tool to address this challenge: postgres_fdw.

What is postgres_fdw?

postgres_fdw, short for PostgreSQL Foreign Data Wrapper, is a built-in extension that allows you to seamlessly access and query data stored in external PostgreSQL databases as if it were local to your current database. This means you can create views, join tables, and perform complex queries across multiple databases without the need for manual data integration or replication.
