Join Charles Fan, SVP R&D VMware, for the #PgWest keynote to learn about new VMware solutions that enables database as a service using PostgreSQL.

VMware vFabric Data Director™ gives IT the ability to control and manage a growing set of heterogeneous databases through policy-based automation, while streamlining application development via a self-service provisioning model for developers to rapidly access the database services needed for modern applications. Built on VMware vSphere, the industry’s most widely deployed virtualization platform, vFabric Data Director also extends the benefits of virtualized infrastructures to the database tier, optimizing resource utilization for increased operational efficiency and cost savings.

The first database supported on Data Director is VMware vFabric Postgres, based on and fully compatible with PostgreSQL 9.0. PostgreSQL has a long history of mission-critical customer adoption and support from a vibrant open source community. VMware has announced the intention to support and contribute to the PostgreSQL community.

vFabric Postgres has implemented significant improvements for the vSphere environment. vFabric Postgres' elastic database memory dynamically adapts to changing workloads to achieve greater memory efficiency and higher consolidation ratios. Dynamic checkpoint tuning and the ability to automatically match VM parameters for optimal performance and resource usage further establish vFabric Postgres as an optimal database choice for vSphere environments. vFabric Postgres is also available on cloudfoundry.com.

To learn more about these innovations, join the VMware team for the following sessions:

· #PgWest Keynote by Charles Fan, SVP R&D
· Using vPostgres – A DB User Perspective, Jignesh Shah
· vFabric Postgres Database Internals, Alex Mirgorodskiy
· Power Database-as-a-Service with VMware vFabric Data Director, Bill Hodak
