On-Demand Replication: Turbocharging Productivity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk will discuss the impacts and implementation of fast, automated provisioning of replicants -- both as writable 'forked' copies and read-only streaming replica 'followers' of PostgreSQL databases, as implemented at Heroku on a large scale as a service.

Included will be a brief summary of use cases, anecdotes, and challenges, as well as new trade-offs in the design of applications and partitioning of data. In addition, the technical architecture behind such a service and how it unifies rock-solid, low-impact disaster recovery, replication, and database-forking will be covered.
