PostgreSQL usage at Hi-Media

Hi-Media online services all run atop PostgreSQL, and use some form of replication. This talk will present what problems we solve with replication, and how.

As we only use Skytools (Londiste) for replicating data, the talk will summarize what we've found in this project after having been using it for 2 years in production. From the community aspects to the failure experience and the impact on the database management (rollouts, etc).
