Postgres in Amazon RDS

A compelling option for startups

In recent years, Amazon’s cloud service is key for deploying and scaling IT infrastructure tiers, and this is not different with Postgres as well. Amazon’s relational database service for Postgres RDS - is a new but compelling option for the startups, when the resources are scarce and administrators are hard to find! RDS is a great option for people to achieve in terms of rapid deployment of replicas, ease of failover, and the ability to easily redeploy hosts when failures occur, rather than spending extensive time trying to repair.

In the talk, I'm planning to topics related to managing Postgres RDS :

  • Introduction of RDS
  • Benefits of using RDS
  • Challenges with RDS
  • Choosing EC2 vs RDS
  • Security
  • Tuning
  • Scaling
  • Monitoring
  • Backups
  • Cost
  • Generic Recommendations
