PostgreSQL: Hyperconverged DBMS that Fully-Virtualizes Database Management

PostgreSQL contains everything needed for managing each type of data in your application.

This presentation will review all of the different aspects of PostgreSQL data management including:

  • Geographic information system (GIS)
  • Full text search
  • Relational data
  • Unstructured JSON data
  • Non-relational (a.k.a. NoSQL) data formats such as:
    • Graph database
    • Document storage
    • Time series data
    • Key/value pairs (K/V)
    • ...and more

Hyperconvergence virtualizes all of the elements of conventional hardware-defined systems into virtual implementations within software or the hypervisor. By having all elements implemented in the hypervisor software context, management of all resources can be federated across all instances of a hyper-converged infrastructure.

Simon will highlight how the hyperconvergence of PostgreSQL provides the flexibility and adaptability to handle all types of use data cases, and how hyperconvergenced Postgres can be the best fit for your project.
