This blog is divided into two parts. In this section, we walk through how the Postgres logical replication feature has evolved over the years, what the recent improvements for logical replication are, and how the feature will likely change in the future. The second blog of the series will discuss the multi-master (active-active), multi-region, and highly available PostgreSQL cluster created by pgEdge that is built on top of logical replication and pgLogical.  

Postgres replication is the process of copying data between systems. PostgreSQL supports two main methods of replication: logical replication and physical replication. Physical replication copies the data exactly as it appears on the disk to each node in the cluster. Physical replication requires all nodes to use the same major version to accommodate on-disk changes between the major versions of PostgreSQL.
