Top 10 Maintenance Tasks for the PostgreSQL PaaS

Presented by: Shailesh Rangani, Practice Lead for PostgreSQL

There is a myth that once databases are moved to a cloud provider, the company won’t need their database administrative (DBA) team.  The idea is, “the cloud provider will manage everything.”  While the cloud certainly helps with repetitive database administration tasks,  repetitive tasks of database administration, there are still a large amount of tasks which need to be performed by the DBA and DevOps team.

In this session, you will learn the top 10 maintenance tasks that a PostgreSQL DBA/DevOps team still needs to take care of even when the database is migrated to a Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS), such as Amazon RDS/Aurora, Azure Flex Server, CitusDB, and Google CloudSQL/AlloyDB.

In this session, we will cover how to monitor and proactively perform maintenance of these tasks:

  • Design Best Practices
  • DB Parameters Tuning
  • SQL Tuning
  • Tuning AutoVacuum Threshold
  • Maintenance On The TABLE/INDEX Bloats
  • Partition Table Maintenance & purging Data
  • Auditing
  • Index Review
  • Sequence/INT Wraparound Review
  • TransactionID Wraparound
