The highly available configurations for PostgreSQL are usually mode with the help of binary replication and some third party utilities. This talk will review the existing solutions, including a simple one based on corosync/pacemaker, which is supported by Postgres Pro. A live demo will be presented.

Another hight availability approach is proposed by the multimaster Postgres Pro extension, which provides high availability without any third-party products. A live demo and description of multimaster caveats will be presented.
