PostgreSQL 9.5 has many new and cool features for database users, making the venerable RDBMS suitable for even more workloads. Among them are:

  • UPSERT for high-concurrency insert/update operations
  • Row Level Security, integrated with SELinux, for ultimate data security
  • CUBE and ROLLUP for sophisticated analytics
  • FDW partitioning for data federation
  • BRIN indexes for big data
  • More JSON goodness

PostgreSQL Core Team member Josh Berkus will take you on a tour of the new features, including demos of many of them, and field questions about PostgreSQL in general.
