Title : Divide and Conquer data:- Advanced Methods for partitioning and sharding data - Latest developments

  • Abstract
  • Historically PostgreSQL was not known for features available for horizontal scalability in handling large data sets. Many PostgreSQL based systems were designed to handle specific types of business cases. But the PostgreSQL as its core was a bit lagging behind. Things started changing over a period of time. New partitioning methods and features for sharding started emerging. This presentation is about smarter choices available today and the major points to be considered for choosing them. This talk is about the right choices to make while designing and planning a system.

  • This presentation includes:

    • A closer look at scalability in the database world.
    • Why divide and conquer is the right approach.
    • New partitioning features in PostgreSQL.
    • How to partition data across multiple PostgreSQL servers.
    • Advanced extensions available for PostgreSQL - Citus data, TimescaleDB.
    • Smart use of FDWs - Clickhousedb - Data from other data sources.
