PostgreSQL JSON Roadmap

The new ISO/IEC 9075-2:2016 standard specifies JSON data and operations syntax and semantics specifics for SQL. This talk overviews the requirements of this standard, and focuses on the differences between them and the actual implementation of JSON/JSONB in PostgreSQL. Special attention will be paid to JSON Path (XPath analogue), SQL/JSON functions and our plans to make Postgres compliant with this standard.

    Migrating off of MongoDB to PostgreSQL

    MongoDB is a successful database in the NoSQL space, mostly used for OLTP-type workloads. However, due to the lack of ACID (transactions in particular) and significant performance issues with OLAP/DW workloads, more and more MongoDB users are considering migrating off of MongoDB to a RDBMS, where PostgreSQL is the usual choice. This represents a significant opportunity for the PostgreSQL ecosystem, to "bring NoSQL to SQL". This talk will present the challenges that MongoDB users are facing and the state of the art of the available tools and open source solutions available to perform ETL and live migrations to PostgreSQL. In particular, ToroDB Stampede will be discussed, an open source solution that replicates live from MongoDB, transform JSON documents into relational tables, and stores the data in PostgreSQL.

    Partitioning with pg_pathman

    Partitioning is a long-awaited feature in PostgreSQL. Although Postgres supports partitioning via inheritance, this approach has some disadvantages, such as the need to manually create partitions and support triggers, significant planning overhead, and no query execution optimizations. In this talk, we’ll tell you about the pg_pathman extension we are developing. pg_pathman supports HASH and RANGE partitioning, performs planning and execution optimizations, supports fast insert by using Custom Node instead of triggers, provides functions for partition management (add, split, merge, etc.), supports FDW, non-blocking data migration, and more. We'll also speak about pg_pathman integration with Postgres Pro Enterprise Edition and Oracle-like syntax support for partitioning. Finally, we'll discuss new partitioning capabilities in PostgreSQL 10, the already implemented features and further development plans.

    Postgres as BI platform core, features, practical experience

    I will tell you about why Postgres is first-choice product as a foundation for your BI system with classical OLAP workload. Briefly it will be said about existing open source BI solutions.

    I will also describe specific of our architecture, why we chose snowflake scheme and how we are doing extract, transformation and load procedures. It will be mentioned about special Postgres tuning for OLAP and massive data bulkload workloads. Also I will let you know about Postgres usage as a column database with cstore_fdw by Citus and results achieved. Cons and problems of our approach will be described in the end of the talk.
