How we cook PostgreSQL at 2GIS in the DevOps age

The dark age for PostgreSQL started at 2GIS after transitioning to the microservice architecture. Every team tried to cook database on their own — by installing instances, juggling versions, trying to code deployments with numerous tools or using manual operations. It was the right time to develop a “silver bullet” — a common set of tools to solve all the problems at once. We created our own cluster solution based on well-known PostgreSQL, repmgr, pgbouncer and Barman. Despite of the complexity of our final solution, we developed a repeatable flexible deployment to accelerate postgresql cluster deployment and management. Also we deployed the our own cluster to consolidate all databases. It helped to eliminate team efforts for database management and focus on their main goals. Failover works, we tried it :-)

    Towards more efficient query plans: PostgreSQL 11 and beyond

    A major responsibility of a database engine is to convert a declarative SQL query to an efficient execution plan, employing various methods to scan and join the relations. There is always a development effort to improve this area. What clever execution plans can PostgreSQL generate, what's new in version 11 and what is in development? To name a few things, the joins are optimized by removing unneeded outer and inner joins, and reducing joins from outer and semi to inner. There is work to enable merge joins on inequality and range overlap, and to improve join selectivity estimates with multi-column statistics. When it comes to scanning a single relation, covering indexes allow to use index-only scans more often. Incremental sort and more precise estimation of sorting costs help generate better paths when sorted output is required, e.g. when using GROUP BY and ORDER BY or performing merge joins. This talk aims to give an overview of such optimizations that already exist and that are being developed now.

    How not to screw up when building HA cluster

    You just set up your first PostgreSQL cluster, created a database schema, loaded some data, did some fine tuning of configuration. Now you want to make your cluster highly available. Unfortunately, PostgreSQL doesn't offer built-in automatic failover, but luckily for us, there are plenty of external tools for that. As a next logical step you start choosing a tool, and... you already doing it wrong, because first you have to define SLA, RTO, and RPO. In this talk I am going to cover most of the common mistakes people do when setting up a highly available cluster.

    Differences between Oracle DB and PostgreSQL in terms of administrating

    As an experienced Oracle DBA, I've discovered some distinctive features of PostgreSQL which I'd like to share with you. We'll review a set of essential tools for DBAs, their capabilities and usefulness in comparison to their Oracle counterparts. Also I'm going to summarize the core differences between Oracle DB and PostgreSQL in terms of administrating.
