No video of the event yet, sorry!

We use PostgreSQL as the timeseries database for the Control and Monitoring sub-system of the MeerKAT telescope. Thousands of sensor updates are processed and stored by the sensor store each second and as the MeerKAT telescope drawers nearer to completion many more systems are coming online. We'll take you on a short journey through the history of the sensor store and show how the current incarnation performs well and scales with very meager hardware.
