Sharding Postgres with Instagram

On Tuesday last week we had a terrific SFPUG meeting at which Mike Kreiger of Instagram explained how they grew and eventually sharded their 2TB of Postgres data to support 27 million users.  It's a great presentation which explains the growth process of a successful web/mobile startup, as well as horizontally scaling PostgreSQL.

Yes, you too can use PostgreSQL to make One Billion Dollars!

Video is on UStream.   Sorry you can't see the slides on the video; we had technical issues with the camera.  Slides are here, you can click along with Mike talking on your own.

  1. What's really amazing about Instagram isn't just the technology involved, but the repackaging of such a simple idea. Who would've thought that an application which allows you to share pictures online would eventually be worth $1 billion.
