Bruce Momjian: Will Postgres live forever? – Data Analytics
Data Analytics. If you’re familiar, if you want to do data analytics in Postgres, there are a lot of people who are working in this area, we’ve made a lot of progress with common table expressions, just in time compilation, grouping sets, BRIN indexes, all in the past five or 10 years, window functions, super powerful for data analytics. And we’ve made improvements in sharding fortunately, in Postgres 14 that was released two months ago, and I’m still waiting to get the results of how well we did with that. But I think that’s an area that we’re going to be moving into in the coming years and a big need for us.
