Abstract

Running the largest fleet of Postgres instances in the world we have a lot of requests from users. We have even more data around what users do. We have websites large and small running on our platform including a top 100 website within the US. We'll take a look at some broader characteristics such as:

  • Distribution of datasizes
  • What extensions get used, i.e. is hstore really a thing people take advantage of
  • Frequent problems users encounter
  • Anecdotal data around most desired upcoming features/developments (which foreign data wrapper is the most requested)

This talk will be heavily data driven and reveal some actual numbers and distributions on usage. Only in places where hard data is entirely unavailable will more summaries be given.
