As a followup to my scaling talk, I have written a draft of another talk, The Future of Postgres Sharding. It starts by explaining the advantages of sharding as a scaling option. It then covers future enhancements to individual Postgres features that, while useful on their own, could be combined to provide a powerful built-in Postgres sharding capability. I am hopeful this talk will help guide the community discussion of implementing built-in sharding.
