Managed PostgreSQL services are becoming increasingly popular as businesses look for ways to simplify and streamline their database operations. But what does it take to build and operate a managed PostgreSQL service?

In this talk, we will take a behind-the-scenes look at the key components of an open and portable managed PostgreSQL service. We will discuss topics such as:

- How to provision and manage PostgreSQL instances at scale
- How to ensure point-in-time restore, high availability, and performance
- How to implement security and compliance measures
- Demo of managed PostgreSQL running on Hetzner

We will also share our experience building and operating the Ubicloud managed PostgreSQL service. We will discuss the challenges we faced and the lessons we learned along the way.
