PostgreSQL at the center of your dataverse
A look at the new SQL/MED features in PostgreSQL 9.1 and how they can be used to connect PostgreSQL to any data source.
In this talk I will discuss the new SQL/MED features in PostgreSQL 9.1. We will examine how PostgreSQL can interface with external data sources, including files, web services, and both relational and non-relational databases, and how we may use that ability to our advantage.
Finally, we will review the code behind a simple Foreign Data Wrapper to another database to see how easy it can be to add support for new data sources with just a little C programming experience.
