Conference Schedule - PGConf.EU 2019

Converting 85% of Dutch primary schools from Oracle to PostgreSQL

Date: 2019-10-18
Time: 13:40 - 14:30
Room: Foscolo
Level: Intermediate

This case study describes migrating the most used application for primary schools in the Netherlands from Oracle to PostgreSQL. The application uses a multi-tenant, single schema database (i.e. 6000 schools in a single database) and runs using a typical Java EE frontend.

You will learn about our application architecture, hardware platform, reasons for switching, migration strategies considered and the results of our migration.

Since the CFP closes one week before our actual migration we can't reveal the results in this abstract, but the presentation will capture all the things that went wrong and well.


The following slides have been made available for this session:
