  • Historically PostgreSQL was not known for features available for horizontal scalability in handling large data sets. As a result, many PostgreSQL based systems were designed to handle specific types of business cases. But the PostgreSQL as its core was a bit lagging behind. Things started changing over a period of time. New methods and features like partitioning, sharding, FDWs started emerging. This presentation is about smarter choices available today and the major points to be considered for choosing them while architecting an Application.

  • This presentation Includes

    • 1. A closer look at scalability in the database world.
