Postgres in Amazon RDS

  • May 8, 2014 · 6:30 PM

This month we have Denish Patel visiting us from Baltimore. Denish has experience managing very large scale Postgres deployments. Normally, he expresses no-biased reasonings for choosing right technology to solve the problem at hand.

Denish Patel's background spans a wide depth and breadth of expertise and experience in database technologies. Using this knowledge, he has architected and designed numerous successful database solutions addressing challenging business requirements. Denish, works as Database Architect at OmniTi, leading a team of database operations.

In recent years, Amazon’s cloud service is key for deploying and scaling IT infrastructure tiers, and this is not different with Postgres as well. Amazon’s relational database service for Postgres RDS - is a new but compelling option for the startups, when the resources are scarce and administrators are hard to find! RDS is a great option for people to achieve in terms of rapid deployment of replicas, ease of failover, and the ability to easily redeploy hosts when failures occur, rather than spending extensive time trying to repair.

In the talk, Denish is planning to cover topics related to managing Postgres RDS :

• Introduction of RDS

• Benefits of using RDS

• Challenges with RDS

• Choosing EC2 vs RDS

• Security

• Tuning

• Scaling

• Monitoring

• Backups

• Cost

• Generic Recommendations
