Your Herd of Elephants: PostgreSQL Replication
Christophe is the CEO and lead consultant at PostgreSQL Experts, Inc., a database consultancy. He's been doing database things since 1997.
PostgreSQL has added in-core logical replication, and now the field of replication options in PostgreSQL has gotten wide: Streaming replication, warm standby, logical replication… We'll discuss what the options are, their limitations and pitfalls, and what the best use-case for each one is. We'll show what it takes to set each one up, monitor it, and get it working again on failures.
