Room: Saal B
Level: Intermediate

In today's world, the amount of data being generated is increasing at an unprecedented rate, leading to the need for efficient management of huge databases. But what do we mean by huge databases? Typically, these are databases that contain millions or even billions of records and require complex querying and processing. Managing such databases can be a challenging task, as they often face common problems such as slow query performance, backup challenges, and difficulty in scaling.

This talk aims to provide practical solutions for managing huge databases using Postgres, one of the most popular open-source relational database management systems. We'll discuss what a huge database means in today's world and how we can manage them depending on the kind of challenges we encounter.

By the end of the talk, attendees will have a better understanding of the common problems faced in managing huge databases and will have the tools and techniques needed to effectively manage their own large-scale databases with Postgres.
