Webinar Replay: How to Automate & Manage PostgreSQL with ClusterControl

Thanks to everyone who joined our first webinar of 2019!

Our colleague Sebastian Insausti walked us through all the ins and outs of how to automate and manage PostgreSQL with ClusterControl!

You can now watch the replay and read through the slides of this webinar to see how much time and effort can be saved, as well as risks mitigated, with the help of a unified management platform over the more traditional, manual methods

Running PostgreSQL in production comes with the responsibility for a business critical environment, which includes high availability, disaster recovery, and performance.

Ops staff worry whether …

  • Databases are up and running
  • Backups are taken and tested for integrity
  • There are performance problems that might affect end user experience
  • Failover will work properly in case of server failure without breaking applications
  • And the list goes on ...

ClusterControl can be used to operationalize your PostgreSQL footprint across your enterprise.

It offers a standard way of deploying high-availability replication setups with auto-failover, integrated with load balancers offering a single endpoint to applications. It provides constant health and performance monitoring through rich dashboards, as well as backup management and point-in-time recovery.

We’ve seen a 152% increase in ClusterControl installations by PostgreSQL users last year, so make sure you don’t miss out on the trend - and watch the replay of this webinar today.

Sebastian Insausti has loved technology since his childhood, when he did his first computer course (Windows 3.11). And from that moment he was decided on what his profession would be. He has since built up experience with MySQL, PostgreSQL, HAProxy, WAF (ModSecurity), Linux (RedHat, CentOS, OL, Ubuntu server), Monitoring (Nagios), Networking and Virtualization (VMWare, Proxmox, Hyper-V, RHEV).

Prior to joining Severalnines, Sebastian worked as a consultant to state companies in security, database replication and high availability scenarios. He’s also a speaker and has given a few talks locally on InnoDB Cluster and MySQL Enterprise together with an Oracle team. Previous to that, he worked for a Mexican company as chief of sysadmin department as well as for a local ISP (Internet Service Provider), where he managed customers' servers and connectivity.
