Postgres in Amazon RDS by Denish Patel

Presented at PGCON 2014

In recent years, Amazon’s cloud service has become key for deploying and scaling IT infrastructure tiers, and this is no different for Postgres. Amazon’s relational database service for Postgres RDS is a new, but compelling option for startups, when resources are scarce and administrators are hard to find! RDS is a great option for people in terms of rapid deployment of replicas, ease of failover and the ability to easily redeploy hosts when failures occur, rather than spending extensive time trying to repair. This talk covers topics related to managing Postgres RDS.
