Not only does PostgreSQL power much of the web, it's running wind power generators as well. The USA's leading wind-power management startup is PostgreSQL-powered, including maintenance, supply, inspection, billing and analytics. Learn how PostgreSQL has allowed this company to develop first-in-industry software for managing wind power.

This talk will cover the design of two systems. First, Service Reports uses iPads, PostgreSQL and Django to track inspections, failures and maintenance online. Second, Analytics allows windfarm owners to collect up to 700 facts per second from each turbine and turn that into trending reports covering power production, reliability and the effects of regulation.
