Is deploying Postgres in Kubernetes just repackaging it into a container? Can’t Postgres leverage the wide range of Cloud-Native software and integrate well with K8s? Join this journey that will cover and demonstrate, with demos running on StackGres on OpenShift:

* How to structure Postgres into an init-less container, plus several sidecar containers for connection pooling, backups, agents, etc.
* Defining high level CRDs as the single API to interact with the Postgres operator.
* Using K8s RBAC for user authentication of a web UI management interface.
* Using Prometheus for monitoring; bundling a node, Postgres and PgBouncer exporters together.
* Proxying Postgres traffic through Envoy. Terminate Postgres SSL with an Envoy plugin, that also exports wire protocol metrics to Prometheus.
* Using Fluentbit to capture Postgres logs and forward them to Fluentd, which stores them on a centralized Postgres database.
* Automating Day 2 operations (backups, minor and major version upgrades, pg_repacks, benchmarks and others) in simple YAML files.
