Banking on Postgres_Large

Shaun has been working with PostgreSQL since late 2000 and has expertise in topics such as handling extreme throughput, High Availability, server redundancy, failover techniques, system monitoring, and cluster management. He is the author of the PostgreSQL High Availability Cookbook, which he wrote to make life easier on DBAs using PostgreSQL in Enterprise environments.

Shaun currently works as a principal consultant at 2ndQuadrant and maintains his PG Phriday blog through the 2ndQuadrant blog site (https://blog.2ndquadrant.com/shauns-planetpostgresql). Ultimately, he wants to prove PostgreSQL is more than ready for major installations.
