Scaling PostgreSQL

Last night, Casey Duncan gave a nice presentation on how Pandora partitions and populates their PostgreSQL data warehouse. The San Francisco PostgreSQL Users Group meeting discussion, Horizontal Scalability with Postgresql: A Case Study, covered how Pandora segments their data set, uses pgpool connection aggregation and Slony for replication and log shipping. I also had great conversation with Greenplum CTO Luke Lonergan, they're definitely pushing the envelope of what's possible with open source database technologies. Kudos to Pandora and Greenplum, great stuff.
