Shardman - the native approach to sharding in PostgreSQL
The amount of data that is handled today by Enterprises and Web companies is constantly growing. At the same time, it becomes increasingly difficult to have and synchronize several copies of data in different systems. As a result there is a demand to work with large amounts of data directly in a transactional DBMS. This requirement is often imposed by the logic of applications that need real-time results. In this talk we will consider what a universal distributed transactional DBMS can be. We will analyze such aspects as the types of load and their prioritization, dynamic resource allocation and the level of consistency. What tools in PostgreSQL can be used to build such system, what we have already done and what is still missing.
