"Modern PostgreSQL High Availability" with Alvaro Hernandez of OnGres

Detalles

We are delighted to present a second Meetup for July!

Thanks to WeWork for providing space, and Ongres for hosting!

Álvaro Hernandez of OnGres will present "Modern PostgreSQL High Availability".

It’s 3am. Your phone rings. PostgreSQL is down, you need to promote a replica to master. Why the h**l isn’t this automatic?

If you thought of this before, you want automatic High Availability (HA). Don’t miss this tutorial! We will enter the world of Modern PostgreSQL HA.

Good news, there are several new, “modern” solutions for PostgreSQL HA. However, there are several solutions and it's not easy to pick one. Most require non-trivial setups, and there are many small caveats about HA like how to provide entry points to the application, HA correctness, HA vs. read scaling, external dependencies, interaction with cloud environments, and more!

Álvaro is a passionate database and software developer. He has been an almost exclusive user of PostgreSQL, as THE database, for more than 15 years. Founder of OnGres, he is dedicated to R&D in databases. Álvaro founded ToroDB, previously the “Billion Tables Project” and keeps working on innovative open source solutions for databases, specially PostgreSQL. On his free time he also contributes to open source and PostgreSQL, like SCRAM's support in PostgreSQL's JDBC driver.

He is a frequent speaker at PostgreSQL, database and Java conferences. Álvaro created the Spanish PostgreSQL user group, one of the largest in the world, with 800+ members.
