By architecting for simplicity and consistency, Heroku Postgres reduced servers to something more like transistors. By lifting old game development tricks, we turned complex operational problems into simple state machines. Relying on other cloud service providers for their specialities lets us focus on doing what we do best: serving up your data to you better than anyone else.
In this talk, I'll cover the architecture that powers the Heroku Postgres service, how it evolved from humble beginnings, and talk about the lucky breaks, the gnarly mistakes, and the unknowable choices we made along the way.
