Earlier this year, I was in Canada for PGConf 2023, where I talked about the evolution of PostgreSQL from a Berkeley research project to its current status as the most advanced open-source database, and discussed the various changes introduced for PostgreSQL 16, particularly regarding logical replication.
Fujitsu Enterprise Postgres was a proud sponsor of PG Conf India this past month, where over 400 attendees, representing 60 cities, across 10 countries travelled to Bangalore in India. Over three days, guests engaged in training workshops, Lightning Talks, and presentations encapsulating the latest contributions, knowledge sharing, updates, and hot topics in the wider open-source PostgreSQL...
Earlier this week, we announced the launch of Fujitsu Enterprise Postgres 15, with enhanced capabilities to manage enterprise data across multiple environments with security, agility, and flexibility. In this post, I will highlight some of the new features available in this release, with examples comparing it with the previous release.
PostgreSQL 15 builds upon the enhancements of earlier versions and takes them to the next level, with several improvements to logical replication, increased sorting performance, and the introduction of the MERGE command. I would like to talk about these features as well as what is under discussion for PostgreSQL 16.
Efficient software technologies reduce the energy usage of computing systems, which in turn help lower carbon emissions in data centers. By adopting efficient technologies designed to minimize the use of computational resources, we can decrease the carbon footprint of the IT industry and contribute to the goal of carbon neutrality.
