No video of the event yet, sorry!

Today’s modern applications must be always on, always available, and serve a global user base that demands fast response times. A fully multi-master distributed database architecture is critical for organizations to meet these demands. In this talk, we will explore the core use cases that benefit from deploying PostgreSQL with asynchronous logical replication in a multi-region or even multi-cloud environment.

Learn how issues such as slow response times, maintenance or provider downtimes, data storage requirements, and throughput can easily be addressed. You’ll see a live demo of how pgEdge distributed PostgreSQL can seamlessly be deployed to improve data latency and high availability as well as address data residency requirements.
