No video of the event yet, sorry!

We will do a deep dive into the exciting new features we recently released, including 9.6 support, new extensions, snapshot sharing, enhancements to encryption, vacuum and replication. We will also explore lessons we have learned managing a large fleet of PostgreSQL instances, including important tunables and possible gotchas around pg_upgrade. During the session we also cover our newly announced Aurora PostgreSQL compatible edition and Performance Insights, our new tool designed to help you understand database performance at a detailed level. We will also show benchmarks of new RDS instance types, and their value proposition.
