PDXPUG February Meeting Recap

Mark & I left David Wheeler in charge of the PDXPUG February meeting while we were at SCALE last week.

Here’s David’s report:

This week Dave Kerr discussed using Bucardo mutli-master replication to gradually migrate a production database from EC2 to RDS. This work allowed his team to switch back and forth between the two systems with the assurance that the data would be the same on both. It also allowed them a fallback in case the RDS database didn’t work out: the S3 system would still be there. The discussion allowed those present to complain about Bucardo, EC2, RDS, and the French.
