Cloud Native PostgreSQL, an operator for Kubernetes
Are you looking forward to using PostgreSQL in a Cloud Native environment based on Kubernetes?
This talk is the perfect opportunity for you to see where Cloud Native PostgreSQL, developed by EDB, is currently standing and how it can be integrated into your Kubernetes and OpenShift Container Platform workloads.
Cloud Native PostgreSQL is a Kubernetes operator that allows you to use the open source PostgreSQL database with your Cloud Native applications, as well as EDB Postgres Advanced.
Cloud Native PostgreSQL is built on solid concepts and principles such as immutable infrastructure, declarative configuration and application containers, making it ideal to use in your CI/CD pipelines as part of the applications’ E2E tests.
Join me to discover how our operators adapt to public/private/hybrid environments, how core features such self-healing, high-availability, scalability, and updates work, and - last but not least - what our DevSecOps culture and processes have produced in the area of security.
