Web-Scale PostgreSQL: The New JSONB Data Type and the Relational World

  • Aug 11, 2014 · 6:30 PM

All data is relational and can be represented through relational algebra, right?  Perhaps, but there are other ways to represent data, and the PostgreSQL team continues to work on making it easier and more efficient to do so!

With the upcoming 9.4 release, PostgreSQL is introducing the "JSONB" data type which allows for fast, compressed, storage of JSON formatted data, and for quick retrieval.  And JSONB comes with all the benefits of PostgreSQL, like its data durability, MVCC, and of course, access to all the other data types and features in PostgreSQL.

How fast is JSONB?  How do we access data stored with this type?  What can it do with the rest of PostgreSQL?  What can't it do?  Join Jonathan S. Katz and Jim Mlodgenski as they take a look at the new features surrounding JSONB and how web-scale PostgreSQL is.
