Interesting new technologies
A couple of things I heard about at Postgres Open that deserve closer inspection are Docker, a nice container toolkit, leveraging among other things Linux LXC, and OpenShift, another containerization platform. Today I discovered that while I was travelling home yesterday (and taking far too long about it), a major announcement was made of collaboration between Docker and RedHat, the principal sponsors of OpenShift. This is pretty cool stuff. OpenShift already has "cartridge" for PostgreSQL, and I am going to play with it the first opportunity I get.
