Webinar: Best Practices for Bulk Data Loading in PostgreSQL


Postgres is a great database engine but what are the best ways to load data into it? This webinar was presented by Shaun Thomas, Principal Consultant at 2ndQuadrant.

This session explored the answers to some of the most common questions related to bulk data loading:

  • Is it the lowly INSERT statement?
  • How much better is COPY?
  • Are there limits to what we can accomplish with parallelism?
  • Can configuration settings accelerate the process?

and much more..
