In den letzten Jahren hat PostgreSQL in fast jedem Unternehmen Einzug gehalten und wird dabei vielseitig eingesetzt. Da aber in der heutigen Zeit zumeist mehrere Datenbank-Systeme zum Einsatz kommen, stellt sich schnell die Frage, wie Daten einfach zwischen diesen Systemen ausgetauscht werden können. PostgreSQL implementiert Teile der SQL/MED- pezifikation, die sich genau mit diesem Thema beschäftigt – und genau darum soll es in diesem Artikel gehen: Wie schaffe ich es, PostgreSQL und Oracle so zu verbinden, dass ich einfach Daten in beide Richtungen austauschen und bearbeiten kann?
Nach meinem Einstieg in die Welt des Oracle-Datenbank-Tunings vor 20 Jahren habe ich mich entschlossen, ein neues RDBMS anzuschauen. Mein Kollege Daniel Westermann, Team Leader des Open-InfrastructureTeams, der schon länger mit PostgreSQL unterwegs ist, hat mich überzeugt, mir PostgreSQL anzugucken. Da das Tuning mein Lieblingsbereich ist, habe ich Daniel gebeten, für dbi services einen „dbi InSite PostgreSQLTuning-Workshop“ zu schreiben. Bei dbi services gibt es für jeden neuen Workshop einen Dryrun. Während dieses Dryruns wurde mir klar, dass ich das PostgreSQL-Tuning vertiefen werde, weil es sehr ähnlich wie Oracle aufgebaut ist, somit werde ich den „dbi InSite PostgreSQL-Tuning-Workshop“ auch selbst geben können
Häufig werde ich nach „besten Praktiken“ gefragt – eine Frage, die mir unangenehm ist, da die Antwort in der Regel vom Kontext abhängt. Ich kann natürlich verschiedene „Standardpraktiken“ empfehlen, die sinnvoll sind, wenn es keinen besonderen Grund gibt, anders vorzugehen. Meist geht es dem Fragesteller jedoch um einfache, allgemeingültige Regeln, die sich immer und überall anwenden lassen. Wenn es um generelle Empfehlungen geht, zähle ich lieber Dinge auf, die unter allen Umständen vermieden werden sollten. An dieser Stelle werde ich daher auf einige der „schlechtesten Praktiken“ eingehen.
