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.

I will speak about our experience in solving the fault-tolerance problem for PostgreSQL, which options we reviewed and how we chose Patroni.
I will cover solution testing, quick implementation to the production and issues we faced as well as the way we solved them.

When migrating data from one DBMS to another, the question arises: choose a third-party tool or to program the migration yourself? Companies, trying to grow competencies within themselves, choose the second option. And they come across the "invention of their own bicycles". However, the market has powerful free data migration tools. One such tool is Pentaho Data Integration, part of the Pentaho Community Edition. The report will discuss the use of this package for data migration between Oracle and PostgreSQL. Particular attention will be paid to the problems with using this tool, and to the tasks of testing for the completeness and integrity of migrated data.

MobilityDB is an open source moving object database system (https://github.com/ULB-CoDE-WIT/MobilityDB). Its core function is to efficiently store and query mobility tracks, such as vehicle GPS trajectories. It implements the Moving Features specification from the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). MobiltyDB is engineered up from PostgreSQL and PostGIS, providing spatiotemporal data management via SQL. It thus integrates with the postgreSQL eco-system allowing for complex architectures such as mobility stream processing and cloud deployments.
The presentation will explain the architecture of MobilityDB, its database types, indexes, and operations. We will highlight the PostgreSQL features that enable this extension, and the would like to have features. This presentation will be of special interest to the PostgreSQL community, and to professionals in the transportation domain.
