Having scalability issues? Attracted to the idea of NoSQL but worried about consistency and having to rewrite your SQL-based applications? Postgres-XC version 1.0 was recently released. Come learn what Postgres-XC is, what use cases make sense for it, what its limitations are, and how to install and configure it.
Postgres-XC is a write scalable PostgreSQL-based shared-nothing cluster with cluster-wide Multiversion Concurrency Control (MVCC) and consistency.
The talk will be presented by Mason Sharp, one of the original architects of Postgres-XC and co-founder of StormDB, a database cloud that is based on a fork of Postgres-XC with many enhancements.
For the first time, we will be hosting one of our Meetups in downtown Manhattan, 5 Broad St., 25th Floor (corner of Beaver and Broad downtown). Seating is limited, and there will be a waiting list, but we will try and accomodate everyone.
