Pluggable Table Storage in PostgreSQL

For PostgreSQL 12 we have worked hard at making table storage pluggable, i.e. allowing to store table data in different forms than PostgreSQL's current heap.

This talk will explain:

  • Why we think it's important to make postgres' storage pluggable
  • how the new API works
  • what types of table stores can be implemented, and what types are not yet possible
  • how the limitations of pluggable storage can be addressed in future versions of PostgreSQL
