Postgres has embodied several iterations of availability in its storied history. Continuous file-based recovery, mirrored storage, failover automation tooling of various description, replication; it's an endless march of progress.

This talk will focus on the journey Postgres has taken, how each step engendered the next. We'll discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each landmark, and the mad scramble toward the elusive zenith. And most importantly, we'll see where this wild ride will eventually lead. Is BDR and Multi-Master the deliverance we've been waiting for?

There's only one way to find out.
