New features in PosgreSQL 9.6.
The talk will focus 3 areas, with short demonstrations:
- parallel query execution allowing more than one CPU core to be used by a query
- synchronous replication with multiple replicas and synchronous 'apply'
- major improvements to postgres_fdw allowing better cooperation between database servers
