The Database Lab Engine (DLE) is an open-source technology to enable thin cloning for PostgreSQL. Thin clones are exceptionally useful when you need to scale the development process. DLE can manage dozens of an independent clones of your database on a single machine, so each engineer or automation process works with their own database provisioned in seconds without extra costs.
DLE 2.4 brings two major capabilities to those who are interested in working with PostgreSQL thin clones:
- a new component, DB Migration Checker, that automates DB migration testing in CI/CD pipelines
- a Terraform module to deploy DLE in AWS using the "logical" provisioning mode
Additionally, this release has a lot of improvements and fixes.
