Full text search in PostgreSQL is probably the most advanced one among relational DBMS. This tutorial will explain how to setup full text search configurations and dictionaries and how to build a ful text search system using an example of a simple popular science web site, with demonstration of various ranking functions. Also I will tell about new RUM index, which allows to accelerate execution of some kinds of full text queries and implements a new improved ranking function.

Using PostgreSQL since 2003, we went all the way from a database of a couple of GB to a cluster of more than 5TB. At the moment, we have more than 700 tables and about 1500 stored procedures. We are ready to share with you the following: - Problems encountered at different development stages and how we resolved them. - Best practices in database administration. - Our own extension to work with several closely related databases. - Best known methods and tools that enable our several teams to work together without interference. - How we set up test equipment of different types. And, of course, we'll talk about optimization, and how we identify bottlenecks and high-load use cases.

Most of the main Skype services use a database platform based on PostgreSQL and other open-source technologies, such as Skytools, plProxy, pgBouncer, etc. This platform consists of several hundreds of servers with thousands of databases, which process hundreds of thousands of transactions per second. At the same time, the platform architecture allows its users (applications and their developers) to work with "logical" databases, without any worries about their real “physical” structure.
Our Skype Database Platform team is responsible for the database platform infrastructure. We develop automation systems for various processes that help us ensure service reliability and facilitate development, testing, and deployment of code. In this presentation, I will outline the database platform architecture, review its main components, and tell you about the methods we use in our every-day work to ensure high availability, scalability, replication, fault tolerance, and more.
