Your Herd of Elephants: PostgreSQL Replication

Audience:
Topic:

PostgreSQL version 10 has added logical replication, and now the field of replication options in PostgreSQL has gotten wide: Streaming replication, warm standby, logical replication…

We'll discuss what the options are, their limitations and pitfalls, and what the best use-case for each one is. We'll show what it takes to set each one up, monitor it, and get it working again on failures.
