5:15 to 5:45 pm - "Non-Relational Postgres" presentation by Bruce Momjian
5:45 to 6 pm - Break
6 to 6:45 pm - "PostgreSQL Replication Solutions" presentation by Bruce Momjian
6:45 on - break and mingle
Non-Relational Postgres - Postgres has always had strong support for relational storage. However, there are many cases where relational storage is either inefficient or overly restrictive. This talk shows the many ways that Postgres has expanded to support non-relational storage, specifically the ability to store and index multiple values, even unrelated ones, in a single database field. Such storage allows for greater efficiency and access simplicity, and can also avoid the negatives of entity-attribute-value(eav) storage. The talk will cover many examples of multiple-value-per-field storage, including arrays, range types, geometry, full text search, xml, json, and records.
PostgreSQL Replication Solutions - This talk is for people who need some kind of replication and want to learn more about the replication options available for PostgreSQL. Replication is not a single technology but rather a group of needs and solutions that has to be tailored to each usage for optimal performance and functionality. This talk outlines the major needs for replication and major solutions, including those currently implemented in PostgreSQL and those in development.
