About this Course

This PostgreSQL Advanced Administration course covers database upgrades, database security, table partitioning, and both streaming replication and logical replication of PostgreSQL 10, 11 and 12 databases.

Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.

The delegate will gain an understanding of:

  • Plan the Upgrade of a PostgreSQL Database
  • Upgrade a PostgreSQL Database
  • Security features Available in PostgreSQL
  • Encrypted TCP/IP connections
  • Encrypt sensitive data using pgcrypto
  • Table Partitioning
  • Setup and use Streaming Replication
  • Setup and use Logical Replication
Who will the Course Benefit?

This PostgreSQL Advanced Administration course is designed for professional database administrators of PostgreSQL 10, 11 and 12 databases who need to be able to successfully plan and implement the upgrade of a PostgreSQL database. The course covers Streaming Replication in PostgreSQL, how it can be used to achieve automatic failovers and setup a highly available PostgreSQL Database Cluster and the replication of individual objects using Logical Replication. The course also covers how security can be managed in a PostgreSQL database, including encrypted TCP/IP connections and encrypted data, and how to split large tables into smaller physical pieces using Table Partitioning. This course is suitable for users of PostgreSQL 9 databases.

Course Objectives

This training is designed for experienced Database Administrators and Architects who want to learn advanced administration techniques for implementing High Availability and Database Security in PostgreSQL.

The delegate will also learn how to upgrade a PostgreSQL database successfully.

Requirements
