Comparing PostgreSQL and MySQL

  • May 25, 2011 · 6:30 PM

With the upcoming releases of PostgreSQL 9.1 and MySQL 5.6, it is important to understand and compare what features each of these open-source databases support and the effects of these different implementations, such as data integrity and performance.

We invite developers and users from both the PostgreSQL and MySQL communities to give short presentations on the differences between the two databases.  Some of the topics that will be covered include:

  • Replication and Backups
  • Clustering
  • Security
  • Disk Storage (including the new unlogged tables feature in PostgreSQL 9.1)
  • Developer Community

If you would be interested in presenting on an additional topic not covered here, please email the organizers or the list.

    We have not recorded any of the NYCPUG meetups to date. We usually try to send out speaker notes / slides shortly after the meetup though.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
