PostgreSQL, the most advanced open source database, has become our go-to relational database for all new-gen applications and also target for migrations.

  1. We are here to share our experiences with PostgreSQL and how we evolved from running a couple of RDS PostgreSQL test instances to hundreds of Aurora PostgreSQL production instances at scale with TBs of data and billions of IOPS per day and why we are now migrating from Aurora PostgreSQL to community PostgreSQL (in EC2 instances).

  2. We will share how we managed to save hundreds of thousands of dollars by constantly evaluating new features and how we built automation to significantly improve developer experience while saving hundreds of hours of time spent on operations.

  3. We will also walk you through our learnings running PostgreSQL in cloud (i.e incidents) and how we responded to them with the help of the community.

Last but not least, we want to keep you entertained throughout the session while sharing our insights
