How PostgreSQL 9 Makes Web Architecture Sweeter

  • February 15, 2011 · 6:15 PM

The new features available in PostgreSQL 9, open up new possibilities for designing high-performance web applications. Some examples are running heavy analytical queries on a read-only slave production database, or diverting read-only traffic to a slave database to help improve web response time. In this talk, I will discuss some ways a production environmentcan be setup with PostgreSQL 9 to enable better performance on web applications while not distorting the development environment. Additionally, I will demonstrate some other tools that can be used in conjunction with PostgreSQL 9 features, including Sphinx, a full-text indexing and combine it with a hot-standby to maximize performance. Talk given by Jonathan Katz Room open at 6:15 pm, talk starts at 6:30 pm.

    Got exposure on some technologies that Jonathan used. Was good to see how he used hot standby in his environment. The discussion on the new features of postgres was also good.
