Patroni in 2019: What's New and Future Plans

Date: 2019-10-16
Time: 17:00 - 17:50
Room: Washington
Level: Intermediate

Being introduced in 2015, Patoni already become one of the most popular and advanced solutions for PostgreSQL high-availability. It works together with Etcd, Zookeeper, Consul or Kubernetes API to store and retrieve PostgreSQL cluster information in a consistent way ensuring that there is only one leader at a time. Unlike the majority of existing solutions for automatic failover, Patroni requires a minimal effort to configure the HA cluster and supports autodiscovery of new nodes.

In this talk we will do a short introduction to the ideas behind Patroni, deep dive into the new features that we have released in the last year and share some plans for future development. Also we are going to cover some interesting bugs and failure scenarios which were fixed.

Patroni is a Python open-source project developed by Zalando in cooperation with other contributors on GitHub: and being used by a lot of small and big companies around the globe.
