Percona Operator for PostgreSQL


This is version 1.6.0 of the Percona Operator for PostgreSQL. The Operator 1.x is now in maintenance mode. We strongly recommend to use Percona Operator for PostgreSQL 2.x.

Kubernetes have added a way to manage containerized systems, including database clusters. This management is achieved by controllers, declared in configuration files. These controllers provide automation with the ability to create objects, such as a container or a group of containers called pods, to listen for an specific event and then perform a task.

This automation adds a level of complexity to the container-based architecture and stateful applications, such as a database. A Kubernetes Operator is a special type of controller introduced to simplify complex deployments. The Operator extends the Kubernetes API with custom resources.

The Percona Operator for PostgreSQL is based on best practices for configuration and setup of a Percona Distribution for PostgreSQL cluster. The benefits of the Operator are many, but saving time and delivering a consistent and vetted environment is key.
