Imagine a junior, or even not-so-junior, DBA drops an important table from what he thought was the development server, but was actually the production environment! Perhaps there is a code-bug that keeps chewing your data down the drain. If you did your homework then you do not have to worry (or at least not worry too much.) This presentation will teach you about the disaster recovery options available with Postgres. We will cover solutions from delayed replicas to Point-In-Time Recovery, showing different ways to recover to specific instances. We will go over several disaster scenarios and see how backup and recover tools like 'barman' can help get your business back up and running. ► Martin Marques, Head of Support Operations, 2ndQuadrant ◄ Martin Marques is the head of support operations for 2ndQuadrant (https://www.2ndquadrant.com) and has been working there for 7-years, originally starting as a senior support engineer.

  • 🤯 Semantic SQL: How to Leverage SQL Superpowers with a SQL Knowledge Graph 🧠📊

    ► VIRTUAL EVENT! Participate from home! ► Lots of free swag giveaways PLUS win the all-new Fire HD 8 tablet! ► Dan Weitzner, VP R&D and Co-Founder, Timbr.ai RSVP now at https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJAucO6hrjwsE9xPqvQ1p1GS3p6gzqD4t1F1 The knowledge revolution has reached the SQL world, and it will change it forever! Join us at this action-packed event where you will learn all about semantic SQL knowledge graphs, why they will change the SQL world forever, and how data-sector professionals like you can benefit from it. Big data is complex! It has variety and is difficult to manage, so organizations typically only use a fraction of the data that they store. Throughout typical enterprises there are many thousands of tables that need to be connected to each other in order to derive meaningful insights using ever more complex analytics. Representing the connected world by describing relationships and their contextual information makes everything better, especially when machines need to understand each other by agreeing on the common meanings of the data that they store. It is also enormously helpful when utilizing artificial intelligence to make use of big data, to develop deep learning algorithms, train machine learning models and make other innovative uses of your data. With relational databases and SQL it is a challenge to represent and derive knowledge from tables, columns and rows. Besides the complexities of union and join statements on SQL queries, you cannot easily visualize and explore tables and columns as connected data. In addition, there is no such thing in SQL as an abstract concept to represent a common meaning of columns in separate tables or databases. The semantic SQL revolution has arrived and makes everything better, enabling relational databases to represent actual knowledge using SQL Knowledge Graphs. Join us in this event to learn: - How any SQL-fluent professional can implement a SQL Knowledge Graph in a short time directly on top of an existing database without needing to add infrastructure, move data or do ETL operations - How SQL query length gets reduced by up to 90% by utilizing semantics - How to query hundreds of tables at once in standard SQL without union or join statements - How you can empower analysts by seamlessly connecting SQL Knowledge Graphs to any BI tool PLUS: we will also include hands-on demos of real-life use cases where you can see for yourself the power of visualizing and exploring relational data as connected data in a graph. ►►► Dan Weitzner, VP R&D and Co-Founder, Timbr.ai (http://timbr.ai) ◄◄◄ Dan co-founded and leads the software development team at Timbr.ai.

  • The NoSQL Era Has Ended 🔮 NewSQL & Converged Databases Are The Future

    Free indulgent fine foods, classy drinks, freebie-swag giveaways and lots of fun! Presented by: ‣ Domenic Ravita, Field CTO, MemSQL This fun-filled presentation will provide you with the education and tools to create a concrete strategy for planning your next database infrastructure, and to analyze if NewSQL and converged databases would be the best fit for your application. The last 15 years have brought many new developments in data management strategies. Previously developers had the relational model as the dominant and nearly only paradigm for databases. Then in the early 2000s, the rise of NoSQL datastores enabled support for massive and convenient data ingestion. This model served multiple use cases including web analytics, complex event processing and streaming analytics bringing new options to developers and data architects. Over the last few years there has been a relational SQL renaissance powered by new hardware innovations. In this presentation, we will look at some of those hardware innovations, the database innovations leveraging them, and the use cases that fit NewSQL and converged databases. ••• Domenic Ravita, Field CTO, MemSQL ••• Domenic has over 20 years of experience across application development, architecture, and data platforms.
