Introduction to Postgres-XC: A Write Scalable PostgreSQL Cluster


Having scalability issues? Attracted to the idea of NoSQL but worried about consistency and having to rewrite your SQL-based applications? Postgres-XC let's you scale your PostgreSQL application beyond a single server without giving up Multiversion Concurrency Control (MVCC) and consistency.
Postgres-XC is: 
- Write-scalable 
It can be configured with many database servers and handle more writes than a single database server. 
- Symmetric 
Have more than one database server which provides a single database view. 
- Synchronous 
Update from any database server is immediately visible to any other transactions running on different servers. 
- Transparent 
Don't worry about how your data is stored on more than one database server internally.
Come learn what Postgres-XC is, what the the ideal use cases are and most importantly, what its limitations are.
