Automated Postgres Failover and Caching with Zero Code Changes
Erik Brandsberg is CTO at Heimdall Data. He specializes in application-networking technologies for web and backend data. Whether it's coding, testing or installing, he has been involved. His diverse experience at Alteon, Citrix, and Juniper Networks gave him a solid understanding of operational complexities in a modern infrastructure, which led to the founding of Heimdall Data.
In this session, we will demonstrate how to implement failover (like PGPool-II) in minutes while adding automated caching for improved performance. Additional topics include monitoring, analyzing query performance, and read/write split to leverage read-only servers. Supported databases include open source Postgres, Greenplum, AWS Aurora for Postgres, and others, without changes to existing applications. Perfect for the cloud or on-premises.
