Hello All - 

Have just joined, am an utter PG neophyte, and please accept pre-emptive apologies if this is not the place for an intro and a question but...

AWS touts an extension "pg_transport" which more or less does what oracle transportable tablespaces does, in spirit - fast transfer of underlying datafile between source and target. All well and good. 

Except, I can't find reference to "pg_transport' anywhere on PG org, Feature matrix, anywhere...except AWS docs. 

Did they actually add something to PG w/o contributing back to community? Is this a private extension? 

Thank you, 
ross

Sure sounds like it. Wouldn’t surprise me.

Best,

Yes, we eventually looped around and figured that was exactly the case…

 There was a further suggestion made that somebody should request Amazon to open source it in their forums 

I said I would consider it if I had an actual customer use case in hand… IE something more than curiosity
