This course takes 3 days with 8 hours each (on site) or 5 hours each (online).
The only difference is that there will be less practical exercises in an online course. However, we will hand them over to you and you can still do them on your own and ask our consultants for feedback or help if needed.


This course provides a deep insight into advanced PostgreSQL topics like indexing, storage parameters, optimization, replication, monitoring, etc. It covers the technical foundations required for replication, scaling, point-in-time recovery, and the successful operation of synchronous and asynchronous replication solutions.
