Talk Type: 
45 Minute Talk
Technical Level: 

Enova Financial provides online financial services to under-served consumers in the United States, Great Britain, Australia and Canada. What originally started with a handful of people and a small application running on MySQL has grown into a multi-million dollar business running on Postgres. In an environment where downtime costs hundreds of thousands of dollars a minute, we continue to stake our claim on open source technologies, including Postgres, Skytools, Ruby on Rails and Linux.

In this talk, we will explain

- How we're using Postgres

- Why we switched from MySQL

- Why we chose Postgres

- What challenges we face using Postgres
