The conference is geared towards scaling PostgreSQL. CHAR(10) stands for Clustering, High Availability and Replication.
“We’re very pleased that the UK is hosting the first conference on PostgreSQL-related clustering, high availability and replication,” Simon Riggs, a PostgreSQL HA developer and CTO at 2ndQuadrant.com told The H. “To have a whole conference dedicated to these topics demonstrates the maturity and range of features on offer. PostgreSQL 9.0 nails ease-of-use, with streaming replication available in core.”
Riggs told The H that there’s a perception problem that PostgreSQL doesn’t support replication when it has for several years.
Registration for CHAR(10) closes on June 26th.
