Upgrading PostgreSQL on AWS RDS with (almost) zero downtime

Upgrading PostgreSQL on AWS RDS with (almost) zero downtime

Stanislav Komanec (Platform Team Leader at Kiwi.com) @ Brno-Moscow Python Meetup 2
"Every database admin’s nightmare & every manager’s dream: Database upgrades without an outage. But is it really so difficult?
In my presentation, I will describe our journey and how we were able to do it. We will explore the challenges of the process including preparation, schema changes, the upgrade, and finally data consistency verification. It’s all about consistency and readiness, isn’t it?"
