Running natively PostgreSQL on Kubernetes
Álvaro is a passionate database and software developer. He has been an almost exclusive user of PostgreSQL, as THE database, for more than 15 years. Founder of OnGres, he is dedicated to R&D in databases. Álvaro founded ToroDB, previously the “Billion Tables Project” and keeps working on innovative open source solutions for databases, especially PostgreSQL. On his free time, he also contributes to open source and PostgreSQL, like SCRAM's support in PostgreSQL's JDBC driver.
He is a frequent speaker at PostgreSQL, database and Java conferences. Álvaro created the Spanish PostgreSQL user group, one of the largest in the world, with 750+ members.

Kubernetes has enabled a new model to deploy applications abstracting away the infrastructure, enabling multi-cloud and on-premise seamless deployments. However, containers are not lightweight virtual machines, and the packing of software paradigms that work on VMs are not valid on containers/Kubernetes.
This talk will cover, among other topics: how to generate PostgreSQL minimal containers; how to package and interact with sidecar containers; integration and extension of Kubernetes.
Join this journey describing how to prepare PostgreSQL to run natively on Kubernetes, and how to build a full PostgreSQL stack (PostgreSQL plus all the components it requires for a full-featured system with monitoring, high availability, etc) in Kubernetes.
