PostgreSQL deployment with Kubernetes and OpenEBS

Lately, with the rise of extensive container orchestration and microservices, Kubernetes has been getting more and more exposure and has become the de facto standard for orchestration in these environments. In this context, orchestration of PostgreSQL clusters with the help of Kubernetes has been a more recent development that can improve availability and reduce operational overhead.

In order to shed some light on the integration of PostgreSQL with the help of containerization software, credativ recently collaborated with MayaData on a joint blog post. This blog post focuses on reasons and benefits on adapting this emerging practice and provides a hands-on walkthrough of setting up PostgreSQL with Patroni on OpenEBS, so you can begin testing in your own environments.
