The default installation of Alfresco includes a basic installation of PostgreSQL, which already works well for several scenarios. But you can do much better with PostgreSQL, improving the performance of Alfresco, and making things easier to maintain.
In this presentation you will see how to design a robust solution for a highly-available database; how to take your backups and do auditing analysis without impacting production performance; how to recover Alfresco's database just before the point of a critical user mistake, instead of back to your nightly snapshot.
If you feel (or someone told you) that PostgreSQL is hard to administrate, we will show you why PostgreSQL is actually DBA-friendly. It has excellent documentation and a great community ready to help. In this presentation you will understand how this forever free database will help you to improve your Alfresco.
