Options for Adding Speed and Scale to PostgreSQL Deployments – May 22, 2019 – PostgreSQL is one of the most widely used databases globally, especially if you add up all the different distributions. This is in part what makes it challenging to figure out how to lower latency and improve scalability with business-critical PostgreSQL deployments. In this webinar, GridGain’s Rob Meyer discussed how companies have added speed and scale to PostgreSQL deployments for different use cases, covering the various options available and when each option makes sense. The webinar also discussed how to evolve your architecture over time to add the speed, scale, agility and new technologies needed for digital transformation and other initiatives.
