PostgreSQL on AWS - EC2 with somewhat reduced tears

A session at PGCon 2012

Friday 18th May, 2012

1:30pm to 2:30pm (EST)

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has become a very popular platform for deploying PostgreSQL-backed applications. But it's not a standard hosting platform. We'll talk about how to get PostgreSQL to run efficiently and safely on AWS.

Among the topics covered will be:

-- Selecting an EC2 instance size, and configuring it for PostgreSQL. -- Dealing with ephemeral instance storage: What is it good for? How much do you need? -- Elastic Block Store: How much do you need? How do you configure it for best performance? -- AWS characteristics and quirks. -- Why replication is not optional on AWS. -- Backups and disaster recovery.
