Containers and Kubernetes are two big trends in DevOps. However, it is not always obvious to DevOps teams how to containerize their databases, and how to operate using container platforms like Kubernetes. In this talk, we will discuss the benefits of containerizing databases and present best practices for running PostgreSQL in containers using Kubernetes.

We will cover how to use Kubernetes to deliver the following for Postgres: High Availability Snapshots Backup and Recovery Data Encryption Seamless database upgrades Blue-green deployments

Performance hints for converged infrastructure without sacrificing availability can apply for Postgres consistently on any environment, on-prem, AWS, Google, or Azure

Attendees will walk away with concrete recommendations that they can apply to their own environment.
