PostgreSQL is a fully-featured, enterprise-grade and open source database, named two years in a row database of the year! And it’s also the best candidate to migrate off of Oracle, supporting very advanced SQL, easy administration and pl/pgsql, a replacement for Oracle’s PL/SQL. Stop spending hundreds of thousands or millions of $ on database licenses and reinvest them in your team, infrastructure and software. Join this tutorial to learn the best practices, tricks and tools to perform a...
In this talk we will discuss a few aspects of application and database design that are often overlooked. I will try providing practical examples and solutions from real life with particular focus on what not to do and “features” to avoid. We will talk about how monolithic application practices are still pervasive in our micro-service and tiered architectures as well as problems with ORMs and various frameworks. Consecutively, we will talk about an approach to building microservice-based...
Out of the box PostgreSQL comes with very conservative performance settings. In this 3-hour workshop, we'll look at more useful options that relate to performance and how to set them for your environment, as well as query optimization, statistics, operating system parameters and server resources. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, but through this workshop, you'll get the fundamentals of performance tuning PostgreSQL and how to best apply it to your configuration and workload.
Evolving the technology stack at Kroger to meet the transformational needs of the business – to become a true omni-channel retailer in the food/grocery space. The technology stack evolves to a cloud-native micro-services platform which moves from an on-prem ecosystem to a hybrid of on-prem and public cloud infrastructure. Along this journey we are not lifting and shifting but rethinking the entirety of the stack to modern cloud-agnostic cloud-native architectures by using an abundance of open...
In this hands-on tutorial, we will cover many of the capabilities that make Postgres the world’s most advanced open source relational database. Specifically, we'll dive deep on how to build scalable, real-time analytics applications using Postgres in the cloud. To do this, we’ll go hands-on and use Azure Database for PostgreSQL including Hyperscale (Citus). Topics include: Why more & more teams are choosing Postgres The Postgres features that matter most to real-time analytics -...
