Heroku PostgreSQL-as-a-Service

Heroku runs the largest PostgreSQL service in the world, currently hosting more than 175,000 databases for web applications. Recently this database service was opened up to the world, making it available to anyone looking for a production-ready database server for their application.

This video presents the process of building and scaling the service, the tools used to increase developer productivity, the experiences running that many databases on an infrastructure-as-a-service provider, and what the responsibilities of a database service provider should be.
