Good Morning!

having run the last 9 months on AWS Aurora I can say that no longer doing dbops is the absolute best

Never will I ever host a database ever again.

dominicm17:12:55

I don't care if confluent, redis or aws host it. I refuse.

There are still many advantages to running your own instance (be it on bare metal, or on a VM), instead of a hosted environment (I'm talking about PostgreSQL here).

dharrigan18:12:56

It can be tuned precisely the way you want it, and the costs are much cheaper than AWS RDS.

dharrigan19:12:31

We use RDS instances ourselves, and I'm fine with that. Simply stating that there is a tradeoff to be had.

I assume that that level of tweaking doesn't matter to me. I can already tweak most of the config file.
