Distributed Point-In-Time Recovery with Postgres

Postgres has a nice feature called Point-in-time Recovery (PITR) that would allow you to go back in time. In this talk, we will discuss what are the use-cases of PITR, how to prepare your database for PITR by setting good base backup and WAL shipping setups, with some examples. We will expand the discussion with how to achieve PITR if you have a distributed and sharded Postgres setup by mentioning challenges such as clock differences and ways to overcome them, such as two-phase commit and pg_create_restore_point.

    Securing PostgreSQL From External Attack

    This talk explores the ways attackers with no authorized database access can steal Postgres passwords, see database queries and results, and even intercept database sessions and return false data. Postgres supports features to eliminate all of these threats, but administrators must understand the attack vulnerabilities to protect against them. This talk covers all known Postgres external attack methods.

    PostgreSQL and compressed documents

    One of advantages of document-oriented databases like MongoDB or Couchbase over RDBMSs is an ability to change the data scheme easily, fast and often. The traditional approach in RDBMS world involves doing an expensive ALTER TABLE operation, slow upgrade of an existing data, and stuff like this. This approach is often slow and inconvenient for application developers.

    To solve this issue PostgreSQL provides JSON and JSONB datatypes. Also there are extensions like zson and pg_protobuf. From this talk you will learn how to work with these datatypes and extensions, their pros and cons and also related future work in this area.

    How to stop being afraid of stereotypes when choosing DBMS for 1C

    «KNOPKA» («The button»), the largest outsourcing of accounting, will tell you about your experience of transferring 500Gb of 1C Fresh databases to PostgreSQL. The report touches on the choice of DBMS and the fight against stereotypes, where we started and how developed the use of PostgreSQL, the approaches to backup and recovery of information security, our current performance of DBMS and 1C, a look into the future. Let us share why we believe that 1C + PostgreSQL is simple, reliable and fast.

    Pluggable storages

    Pluggable storages is hot subject in PostgreSQL development. The period of heated debates about whether we need them is over. Skepticism about pluggable storages, based on concern that they may be source of inconsistent behavior, was weakened after criticism of PostgreSQL MVCC implementation from Uber side. It became widely understandable that pluggable storages are needed at least for an alternative MVCC implementation. And that is one of way-points for pluggable storages interface design.

    At the moment, work on pluggable storages is in the practical stage. There is a thread is pgsql-hackers where few people are developing patchset and several people are doing review.

    This talk will cover following subjects:

    • overview of pluggable storages interface;
    • changes in PostgreSQL core required to implement this interface;
    • current and potential implementations of pluggable storages including heap with undo-log and in-memory OLTP engine;
    • current state of patchset and prospective of its commit
    • further development of interface allowing more possibilities in pluggable storages (columnar, index-organized, LSM and so on).
