In May of this year, Google released the public preview of their long awaited and proprietary version of PostgreSQL called AlloyDB. This Google Cloud (GCP) service differs from the core PostgreSQL (and from their own Cloud SQL PostgreSQL) with some Google unique features and performance optimizations. Yet, AlloyDB remains 100% PostgreSQL compatible. As a cloud-only offering, AlloyDB is, in some ways, a competitor to Amazon’s Aurora.

This session is an introduction to this new cloud service, AlloyDB for PostgreSQL. It covers some of the Google Cloud differentiators, provisioning and deployment uniqueness, and key capabilities that DBAs will find useful. Including core advantages, tips from experience, and implementation lessons learned from Pythian’s experience.
