Containers are everywhere. Whether in a code test suite, a developer's laptop, in production or CI/CD pipelines, containers have taken the deployment world by storm. Similarly, Kubernetes adoption is skyrocketing.

How does Postgres fit in this container era? Is Postgres "cloud native"?

The challenges to optimally run Postgres in containers will be explored, including the challenges associated with one of the most loved features: extensions.

Containers are here to stay, and they are everywhere. Postgres can and should run optimally on containers. We can catch this train of the present and future, or watch it go. It's time to act.
