vFabric Postgres (vPostgres) is a new offering from VMware, optimizing
PostgreSQL for virtualized platforms. We will describe our
improvements over stock PostgreSQL, such as database ballooning,
adaptive tuning of checkpoint parameters, and high availability
features. We will also talk about our backup/restore infrastructure
that combines PostgreSQL and VMware vSphere features to provide
Point-In-Time Recovery and Snapshot capabilities for managed
databases.
