What you learn in the first six months on a high performance Postgres team
No video of the event yet, sorry!
Celeen and Micah are both experienced developers, but had never managed large databases. Then they joined Braintree’s Database team, which is responsible for the maintenance, scaling, and application interactions of twenty high availability Postgres clusters storing a hundred terabytes that drive the processing of more than 6 billion payments a year. In this talk, we discuss learning about the inner workings of Postgres, how Braintree works with Postgres’ strengths, design and community to help overcome stresses at scale, and the perspective gained moving from an application development team to a database team.
