Patroni and Stolon: Installation and failure processing
Patroni and Stolon are two of the most popular and advanced solutions for orchestrating PostgreSQL and ensuring auto-failover for clusters with the Leader-Followers configuration. However, engineers who migrate from good old tools like Corosync&Pacemaker or built-in solutions of other DBMS often run into issues when installing these tools and figuring out the purpose of each component.
In this tutorial, we will go through a typical installation procedure of Patroni and Stolon clusters on virtual machines (not in containers), as well as review their behavior in case of various infrastructure failures. The whole process will be demonstrated on three vagrant virtual machines with pre-built images. You can follow along on your own system if you set up the required environment.

At the master class, we will learn how to execute fast load tests of Postgres databases: optimizing database configurations, data structure, indexes, OS settings, etc. To do this, we will create a code, build the infrastructure for the test from it and will do the test. As a result, we get a flexible tool in the code to which you can attach any monitoring, and for which you don't have to pay a lot of money, because the environment is created in 7 minutes in an empty AWS account and destroyed after test

Many businesses which use Database management systems like Oracle, DB2 & MS SQL are unreliable these days. Moreover, the costs incurred in maintaining these systems and its product licenses keeps on increasing. As the competitors are migrating over to the new technologies and tools available in the market, it is necessary for these businesses to migrate to new environment which is efficient, consistent and reliable to stay in the market and the technologies used in the current environment have become obsolete or no longer serve the business purpose. PostgreSQL has emerged as a top open-source RDBMS software. Since there is no licensing cost associated with it most of the companies are planning to migrate the databases which are currently running on other RDBMS like Oracle, DB2, MS SQL server to PostgreSQL. This report summarizes the various methodologies, procedures and techniques involved in successfully migrating the data from Oracle to PostgreSQL & DB2 to PostgreSQL. Migration is not a simple effort there should be proper planning and testing involved in this right from database connectivity to performance analysis. In this paper we are going to cover most of the steps which we need to consider before the migration and after the migration like choosing the correct tools for implementing the migration, time taken to migrate ,data compatibility, code conversion, application connectivity to database, database configuration parameters, performance analysis, replication setups, database monitoring, patching and backup strategies.

Porting applications from Oracle to Postgres is common work today. Unfortunately it is not without problems. In presentation I'll try to show the basic performance problems related to differences between Oracle and Postgres and PL/SQL and PL/pgSQL.
