October 2010 | Open Source

PostgreSQL 9.0 Administration Cookbook is a new book from Packt, which will help readers to administer, monitor and maintain a healthy database by ensuring that it performs as quickly as possible. Written by Simon Riggs and Hannu Krosing, this book provides readers with tips for backup and recovery of their database along with over 80 recipes to help run an efficient PostgreSQL 9.0 database.

PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system, which runs on all major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX (AIX, BSD, HP-UX, SGI IRIX, Mac OS X, Solaris, Tru64), and Windows. It is fully ACID compliant and boasts of sophisticated features such as Multi-Version Concurrency Control (MVCC), point in time recovery, tablespaces, nested transactions (savepoints), and online/hot backups.

PostgreSQL 9.0 Administration Cookbook describes key aspects of the PostgreSQL open source database system and covers everything that a sysadmin needs to protect, manage, and run a well-organized PostgreSQL 9 database. Furthermore, this book gives quick answers to common questions and problems and is broken down into short recipes to demonstrate solutions with working code.

Using this book, developers will learn to implement PostgreSQL features for reliability, replication, high availability, and performance along with best practices for planning and designing live databases. Additionally, the book provides advanced technical guidelines and scripts for experienced users, and helps them to select and implement robust backup methods.

A practical guide packed with step-by-step instructions and multiple examples, this book is ideal for all sysadmins, database administrators, architects and developers, who are interested in planning for or running live production databases. The book is out now and available from Packt.To read more about it, please visit: www.packtpub.com/postgresql-9-administration-cookbook/book
