Scaling PostgreSQL Using Linux Containers in the Enterprise
First introduced to hangman on a mini computer playing the William Tell Overture, Robert is an old school hacker. Initially trained on punch cards, and after undergoing several years of much needed therapy overcoming the trauma, Robert discovered Linux and was part of the rush leveraging the Internet. Eventually, he focused his open source activities on PostgreSQL. Since then he has presented at conferences, written dozens of articles (some having been translated into several languages), contributed to books. He has consulted, and trained, mom & pop shops, defense contractors, Fortune 100 companies, research centers and universities.
After three years of California's famed Silicon Valley, he returned to the Pacific Northwest and experience real weather. His day job is working at Zonar Systems, in Seattle's International District, managing several hundred terabytes of data as the senior postgres DBA.

EXPERIENCE LEVEL: Expert SESSION TRACK: Infrastructure DETAILS: COURSE DESCRIPTION: Automation is THE big thing these days. Software delivery and infrastructure changes in regards to provisioning, creating and tearing down servers, is no longer a niche activity for only the largest and most complex networks. Nowadays, everybody is racing to automate their environments and achieving an ever faster DEV-QA-PRODUCTION Life-Cycle. Better than ordinary application containers, OS containers are the best way to manage your PostgreSQL servers. SYLLABUS/AGENDA: This talk describes and walks through the installation of the following technologies: - The ZFS file system - The Linux Container infrastructure - Example containers i.e. Debian, Centos, Ubuntu etc - The PostgreSQL RDBMS LEARNING OBJECTIVES: We will demonstrate how easy PostgreSQL DBA tasks become in a virtual/cloud environment, including: - Provisioning - Replication - Standby Servers - Backups - Snapshots - Upgrades (binary and cluster) - Rollbacks WHO WILL GAIN THE MOST FROM THIS TRAINING: DEVOPS, Systems administrators, Full stack developer(s), Managers/team leaders PREREQUISITES FOR THIS COURSE: - DBA stuff (of course) - Systems Administration (know your linux, be comfortable on the command line) - Be comfortable compiling source code
