Running autoscaling Postgresql at Scale!


You keep hearing about containers and maybe you have even played with Docker. You are now wondering - how do I run and manage this in production? In this session we are going to show you how. We'll level set with a quick intro to Docker, then show how CrunchyDB has taken advantage of containers to do more with Postgresql. Then we will demo bringing these images up to scale and orchestrated with Kubernetes and OpenShift - two opensource project used to manage containers. This talk will be mostly examples and working code with discussion showing PostgreSQL in a full featured container-based application.

Hey Steven,

This seems like a great workshop. It's set under PostgreSQL day, but that day will not contain any tutorial tracks. I was wondering how difficult it would be to shift from building a plain PostgreSQL to PostGIS application? I think there would be a lot of interest in a "Running autoscaling PostGIS at Scale!" talk.

I'm interested in scaling PostgreSQL to meet spikes in demand in my application. I imagine such scaling would require replication, but I'm not getting any feeling for replication being a topic covered by this session. I looked at the slides and it seems the session just covers deploying docker. Can you please clarify?
