PostgreSQL to cloud manage or self-manage?
No video of the event yet, sorry!
Azure,GCP, AWS are the big 3 cloud platforms. Each provide PostgreSQL as a service in their cloud services. Are there benefits to using the clouds PG managed instance or is it better to spin up VMs/EC2 instances and install PostgreSQL and then manage on your own? Some say that it's always better to spin up EC2/VM instances. But some could argue it's better to use the managed instances. I will dwelve into the realm of cost analysis between the two, what the ROI might be between the two. I will try and show real world metrics of PG on all 3 cloud environments managed and self-managed. The drawbacks between managed vs self-managed. This presentation will not recommend what should be done. It will show the data, and will be up to the user to choose.
