Speaker: Saâd Dif
Hi! I’m Saâd. I am a Data Architect in the Foundations team for BlaBlaCar since 2016. I’m trying to help my team mates building great foundations for the tech stack to make our members travel more and see their loved ones.
I slipped in the Database cooking pot nearly a decade ago when I was a student. I then worked in an IT Service company for a few years.
We found it would be useful to a lot of people to talk about what and why we do our things at BlaBlaCar.
I will talk about how we deal with herds of containers and more specifically PostgreSQL ones. What is our usage of PostgreSQL, the problematics that we had and how we decided to use BDR.
Then it will be about how we implemented it, how we manage or monitoring/alerting and backup/recovery with a feedback of the solution.
