Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL Compatibility Tutorial

Monday 9:30AM-12:30PM

@ Room M2

Open Source Databases

3 hours tutorial



In this training session, we will combine an extended deep dive on the Aurora architecture with a hands on lab using Aurora PostgreSQL. As part of the deep dive we will cover the unique features and changes that work together to produce improved scalability, availability and durability.

In addition, you will get a hands-on experience creating an Aurora PostgreSQL cluster, configuring that cluster for high availability and read scaling as well as point in time recovery, and cloning your cluster. We will also walk through failover, promotion and the best practices around parameter settings based on application workload.
