Fastest way making records unique in a huge PostgreSQL table

I am currently working on a project were we are collecting huge amount of data. Recently we discovered that millions of rows were not unique.

Therefor we had to come up with a solution to remove all dublicates and prevent new dublicates in the future. Continue reading
