StandBy-Database Shootout - PostgreSQL vs. Oracle

Date: 2024-04-12
Time: 12:50–13:35
Room: Ballsaal 2
Level: Intermediate
Feedback: Leave feedback

Using PostgreSQL in high-available environments is always based on replication and standby databases. There isn't and probably won't ever be an equivalent alternative to solutions like Oracle Real Application Cluster regarding scaling out the database service on multiple active nodes. Multi-master-replication solutions with PostgreSQL are somehow pointing in this direction but only in special scenarios. As the most hyped target for migrations from Oracle the comparison to Oracle Data Guard is inevitable. In this talk a direct comparison will show similarities, differences and the advantages or disadvantages of both worlds in detail including the relevance of additional PostgreSQL solutions like Patroni or repmgr.
