Deep Dive into Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 - 18:30
SF Bay Area PostgreSQL Meetup
San Francisco

In February, we're pleased to have Jignesh Shah talk about Aurora!

Amazon Aurora is a cloud-optimized relational database that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. The recently announced PostgreSQL-compatibility, together with the original MySQL compatibility, are perfect both for new application development and for migrations from overpriced, restrictive commercial databases. In this session, we’ll do a deep dive into the new architectural model and distributed systems techniques behind Amazon Aurora, discuss best practices and configurations, look at migration options, and share customer experiences from the field.

Jignesh Shah is Product Manager for Amazon RDS with Amazon Web Services. At AWS, he works on PostgreSQL engines at AWS including Amazon RDS PostgreSQL and Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility. He has worked with PostgreSQL since 2005 and has released application and database lifecycle products using PostgreSQL at appOrbit and VMware. He is an active member of the PostgreSQL community for a long time publishing a first standards accepted benchmark using PostgreSQL when he was at Sun Microsystems. His interests are in Cloud technologies involving Operating Systems, Containers and Databases.
