PostgreSQL 13 was released last week. As a PostgreSQL developer, of course I monitor the news and social media on days like this to see what the public thinks about our release and maybe which features get discussed most. The latter is always surprising. What I noticed particularly this year was that most of the […]
In a previous article of this series, we created a two-node PostgreSQL 12 cluster in the AWS cloud. We also installed and configured 2ndQuadrant OmniDB in a third node. The image below shows the architecture: We could connect to both the primary and the standby node from OmniDB’s web-based user interface. We then restored a […]
Don’t make people practice software archaeology – keep your system updated. Updates? One of the benefits of the open-source world is the unmatched ability to issue updates rapidly to correct bugs and security vulnerabilities. Software bug fixes keep streaming in: from recently introduced regressions, to long-standing bugs undetected for years, they are corrected by a […]
Barman 2.6 introduces support for geo-redundancy, meaning that Barman can now copy from another Barman instance, not just a PostgreSQL database.
In Part 3 of this series (here are Part 1 and Part 2), I would like to demonstrate how the development of a new feature for Barman would flow through the Kanban board.
Some years ago, I prophesized that PostgreSQL would win in the end, and that we would be able to tell because there would be “Microsoft PostgreSQL”. I am happy to report that has now happened. Microsoft PostgreSQL database service on Azure was announced recently. Of course, that was just a metaphor for “a.n.other big company”, […]
In Part 2 of this series, we will continue our journey within the developmental dynamics of the Barman open source project for PostgreSQL database backup and disaster recovery. After providing a small introduction to devops and Kanban in Part 1, let’s focus on the basic element of our daily management: The Boards.
We very often hear about devops culture, lean and agile methodologies, kanban, pair programming, peer review, testing, and many more; but how many of us could effectively put these things into practice?
…and why I’m glad I did. It’s not all technical… Who knew?! Last year, Pycon7 was held right about the time I joined 2ndQuadrant. Seeing as I was new to the technology AND the Italian language (note: there was an English track), I opted out of attending. Well, after attending Pycon8, I can say that […]
pgDay Paris 2017 is the third annual one-day, one-track PostgreSQL conference, held in Paris, France. The schedule is live! This year, all presentations are in English in order to bring the very best of the international community to Paris and to show how PostgreSQL is used around the globe. Here is what you’ll see at pgDay […]
