Upgrade Techniques Through the Ages
Shaun is the author of the PostgreSQL High Availability Cookbook, and a frequent presenter at Postgres Open and 2QPG conferences on topics such as handling extreme throughput, High Availability, monitoring, architecture, automation, Multi-Master conflicts, and more. He’s contributed a few PostgreSQL extensions as well as a tool for administering massive database clusters. On occasion, he’s even been known to guest lecture at the local university. His goal is to help the community make PostgreSQL a bigger, better database for everyone to enjoy.

Back in my day we suffered the crushing hardship of dump and restore, hours of downtime both ways, and we liked it! Wait... no we didn't! Thankfully things have advanced since then, and we'd like to talk about it. Along the way, we'll cross every milestone up to fully online major version upgrades.
There are even rumors of mixed-version operational clusters for truly zero-downtime upgrades. It's exciting living in the future!
