Conference Schedule - PGCon 2022

Logical replication in PostgreSQL is moving forward

Date: 2022-05-26
Time: 10:00 - 10:45
Room: Stream 1
Level: Intermediate

PostgreSQL 15 and beyond will see a variety of new features such as row filtering, sequence replication, and improved error handling. Many more features are in progress for future versions. In this presentation, I want to lay out and discuss our roadmap for logical replication in PostgreSQL.

Topics include:

  • row filtering
  • column filtering
  • sequence replication
  • schema syncing
  • error handling
  • skipping transactions
  • less reliance on superuser
  • logical failover
  • conflict handling
  • perspectives on pglogical and BDR

Depending on progress in the intervening months, some of these features will be in PostgreSQL 15 by the time PGCon happens, so we can preview these features at that time. In any case, there will be a lengthy list of things we plan to work on beyond PostgreSQL 15, and of course we are looking for other community members to join these efforts.
