Conference Schedule - PGConf.EU 2022

Cloud friendly COPY

Date: 2022-10-26
Time: 16:20–17:10
Room: Berlin 2+3
Level: Intermediate

Current COPY command in PostgreSQL is hard-coded to 3 formats (native, CSV, binary) and two transports (local file and stdin/stdout).

This is very limiting, especially in cloud environments where new formats and transport protocols are still developed regularly.

In this talk I will demonstrate how we can open up development of COPY via a plugin system similar to what we use in many places - index access methods, table access methods, logical decoding plugins, etc
