Presented by:

Álvaro is a passionate database and software developer. Founder of OnGres ("ON postGRES"), he has been dedicated to Postgres and R&D in databases for more than two decades.

Álvaro is at heart an open source advocate and developer. He has created software like StackGres, a Platform for running Postgres on Kubernetes; or ToroDB (MongoDB on top of Postgres), both open source projects.

As a well- known member of the PostgreSQL Community, Álvaro founded the non-profit Fundación PostgreSQL (organizer of PostgreSQL Ibiza conference) and the Spanish PostgreSQL User Group. He has contributed, among others, the SCRAM authentication library to the Postgres JDBC driver.

You can find him frequently speaking at PostgreSQL, database, Java and cloud (becoming an AWS Data Hero in 2019) conferences. In the last 10 years, Álvaro has completed more than 140 tech talks (

Today, running Postgres on Kubernetes is not out of the ordinary. But given all of Kubernetes capabilities, doing a 1:1 between how you run Postgres on Kubernetes and how you run it outside of it is a loss of opportunity.

The Open-Source StackGres ( project has leveraged Kubernetes API to its fullest to make Postgres not run, but fly, on Kubernetes! Join this webinar with live demos to see how to:

  • Collect Postgres and Patroni logs from all pods into a central location, which is a separate Postgres database. Query logs with SQL, or via a Web Console.
  • Export Postgres network metrics to Prometheus, and offload SSL from Postgres via the Envoy proxy.
  • Fully automate Postgres upgrades with minimal disruption.
  • Fully automate Postgres “Day 2” operations, like repack, vacuum or even benchmarks!
  • Install Postgres extensions with 1 click, or 1 YAML line.
