Hot standby and streaming replication move the needle forward for high availability and scaling for a wide number of applications. Continuent Tungsten has earlier supported PostgreSQL clustering using warm standby. In this talk we will describe how to build clusters using the PostgreSQL 9 features and give our report from the trenches.
This talk will cover how PostgreSQL 9 hot standby and streaming replication work from a user perspective, then dive into a description of how Tungsten really makes them to shine.
We'll cover the following issues:
* Configuration of warm standby and streaming replication
* Provisioning new standby instances
* Strategies for balancing reads across primary and standby database
* Managing failover
Please join us for an enlightening presentation a set of PostgreSQL 9 features that are interesting to a wide range of PostgreSQL users.
