Creating Continuously Up to Date Materialized Aggregates
Time-series workloads (i.e. data from sensors, IoT devices, finance, or even satellites) are generally insert-mostly, and data typically arrives in time order (at regular or irregular intervals). Given the high velocity and continuous workload of writing time-series, insert performance is paramount. But what is the use of inserting a significant amount of data if you can't analyze, visualize, and act on it effectively? Unlike many OLTP workloads, you often don't need the granularity of each data point, but rather reports on aggregates over significant periods of time and other analysis are the key to making good decisions with the data you store.

This talk describes how TimescaleDB (a time-series database packaged as an extension of PostgreSQL) has implemented the infrastructure for creating continuously up-to-date aggregates without write amplification using features of Postgres (partial aggregates, invalidation triggers, proper locking/transaction safety, background workers, union views, query planner etc.), as well as how/when to use these pre-calculated results to speed your queries.

Lightning Talk: A Multi-layered Security Architecture for Your Postgres Databases
Data security has never been more important than it is today. Considering the amount of data collection most modern apps require, it’s not just imperative to keep private and proprietary safe and secure — with measures like the European Union’s GDPR, it’s also the law. For organizations running any sort of data operation, keeping databases secure from existing and emerging threats is crucial. EDB's approach to data security uses a multi-layered security architecture. Join this session to learn about how this approach is designed and implemented.

Lightning Talk: Where Should You Deliver Database Services From?
Organizations have a choice when it comes to database platform. On the one hand, the dev platforms that cloud vendors provide are fast and loaded with tools, you don’t manage the infrastructure and only pay for what you use. On the other hand, deploying on premises can mean better control over performance, security, user experience and compliance. This session discusses making those choices – not for one app, but at enterprise scale. What should you consider? Which factors say “cloud”?  Which factors say “on premises”? And can you get a consumption-based experience either way?

Vacuuming: Through Pictures
Proper Vacuum operations is an important function of any Postgres deployment. Vacuum is at the core of many Postgres operational items. Having a Postgres deployment properly tuned for vacuum is critical for all successful Postgres production instances. Unfortunately, may people struggle with the concepts behind vacuum and auto-vacuum. Hence, DBAs and Developers become extremely confused about how to tune the critical functionality associated with them (i.e. reclaiming dead tuples, freezing tuples and analyzing tables).

This talk will cover some key concepts of Postgres Vacuum and Autovacuum and some of the concepts around properly tuning Vacuum. This talk will include extensive use of diagrams, illustrations and animations to present the concepts around Postgres Vacuum and tuning Postgres Vacuum. The talk will be augmented with real life stories about how tuning vacuum properly makes a difference.

New Developments in Pluggable Storage in PostgreSQL
For PostgreSQL 12, the PostgreSQL developers, including Andres Freund, have worked hard at making table storage pluggable, i.e. allowing to store table data in different forms than PostgreSQL's current heap.

The goal of this work so is mainly twofold: First, to be able to address new use cases that PostgreSQL's current storage is not well suited for (e.g. columnar stores for analytics workloads). Second, to be able to make architectural changes to even better handle workloads PostgreSQL is already widely used for (e.g. to reduce problems with VACUUM and increase storage density.

In addition to the reasons for making Postgres' table storage pluggable, the talk will give a brief overview over the new API, explain what types of table stores can already be implemented using it,  and what types are not yet possible, and how the limitations of the API prevent the latter can be addressed in future versions of PostgreSQL.

The Vision for Graph Database from Postgres
Due to the 4th Industrial Revolution, the IT industry is making continuous progress. However, flood of unstructured big data through various devices are pouring in and the customers’ needs are becoming more complicated than ever. Although PostgreSQL is definitely an enterprise-class, high quality DBMS, several options require some reviews to meet the various purposes of corporate users.

In this session, we will introduce the concept of Graph Database (which has strength in relation-based data analysis during this hyper-connected era) and the synergy effect in combination of Postgres and NoSQL (Graph Database). Through this session, the attendees will be able to discover a direction of Postgres’ unlimited scalability.

Lightning Talk: Good Data Gone Bad, Bad Data Gone Worse
How bad data gets into the pipeline, how developers make data bad and worse in the pipeline. This talk will look at data sources, data types, and ways Postgres can be used to abuse data. Renee Phillips brings her experience before joining the tech world, and after to discuss problems seen in many data sources. Renee's background in Medical Anthropology and work in various industries taught her the effects of bad data on decision making. Her recent experience doing QA for a startup gave her new insight into data quality issues at the source. She will talk about some of the things that a user can do or not do in PostgreSQL that might or will definitely lead to data corruption.


This talk is suitable for users of all experience levels. A version of this talk was presented at PGDay Nordic in 2019

MongoDB vs. Postgres Benchmarks

Benchmarking is hard. Benchmarking databases, harder. Benchmarking databases that follow different approaches (relational vs document) is even harder.

But the market demands these kinds of benchmarks. Despite the different data models that MongoDB and PostgreSQL expose, many organizations face the challenge of picking either technology. And performance is arguably the main deciding factor.

Join this talk to discover the numbers! After $30K spent on public cloud and months of testing, there are many different scenarios to analyze. Benchmarks on three distinct categories have been performed: OLTP, OLAP and comparing MongoDB 4.0 transaction performance with PostgreSQL's.

What would be faster, MongoDB or PostgreSQL? There's only one way to know: attend this talk!

Scaling PostgreSQL for High Performance with Increased Database Load and Data
A well maintained database that has been performing fast may suddenly start to degrade due to increased traffic or data. So, how should we scale up? Should we increase the memory or add more CPU cores? Would faster storage help? How can we scale a PostgreSQL server so that it can do the best forever with increasing data volume and transactions over a period of time ? In this presentation, we shall discuss how a connection pooler, load balancer, partitioning, tablespaces and a few extensions can help us scale a PostgreSQL server.

HTAP By Accident: Getting More From PostgreSQL Using Hardware Acceleration
Big Data. Data Science. AI. It's all big business.
Once upon a time we succeeded in these fields by selectively storing, processing and learning from just the right data. This, of course, requires you to know what "the right data" is. We know there are valuable insights in data, so why not store the lot? It's the 21st century equivalent of "there's gold in them thar hills!"

So having spent years stashing away terabytes of your data in PostgreSQL, you want to start learning from that data. Queries. More queries. More complex queries. Lots of real-time queries. Lots of concurrent users. It might be tempting at this point to give up on PostgreSQL and stash your data into a different solution, more suited to purpose. Don't. PostgreSQL can perform very well in HTAP environments and performs even better with a little help.

In this presentation we dive into the current state of the art with regards to PostgreSQL in HTAP environments and expose how hardware acceleration can help squeeze as much knowledge as possible out of your data.

The Future of zHeap
Data bloat, what is it and how it can impact the large Enterprises?  The databases are prone to generate additional data for certain operations, but the important thing is how efficiently it manages to remove it or avoid growing it over a period of time.

PostgreSQL also offers ways to contain and remove bloat, but many-a-time those are so costly or requires high maintenance that they don't help.

zHeap is a solution in making that will avoid generating bloat in PostgreSQL.  In this talk, I will explain how this new solution can help in solving the problems related to bloat.

Bloat is the main problem which zHeap tries to address, but that is not all, it will also have a smaller disk footprint and will reduce the disk writes.

This talk will also cover what is already done and what is the future plan to make this solution a reality in PostgreSQL.
