Master Automatic Failover to Standby Feature only Available for Greenplum


  • Pivotal Greenplum Database (GPDB) all versions
  • Operating System- All supported


Does Pivotal Greenplum Database have any automatic failover feature available for software-only clusters so that in the event of a hardware failure on the master node, an automatic failover to the secondary master node can happen? 


Currently, there is no automatic failover feature available for the Pivotal Greenplum Database for software-only clusters.

Additional Information

A feature request was submitted to Pivotal Greenplum Database Engineering team to have this feature be made available in a future release of Pivotal Greenplum Database.
