Postgres Scaling Opportunities

Date: 2014-10-22
Time: 15:00 - 15:50
Room: Medici I
Level: Intermediate

Database scaling is the ability to increase database throughput by utilizing additional resources such as I/O, memory, cpu, or additional computers. However, the high concurrency and write requirements of database servers make scaling a challenge. Sometimes scaling is only possible with multiple sessions, while other options require data model adjustments or server configuration changes. This talk explores the multi-session, single-session, and multi-host scaling options and the workloads where these options are appropriate.
