Running a database is hard. And that's especially the case when you need tens or hundreds of databases that should be configured consistently, and have capabilities such as HA, backups, monitoring, and more.

As someone who is part of a team that has built a solution in this space, leveraging Kubernetes for the underlying cluster management, this talk will be an introduction to the tools available today to run open-source databases, and in particular PostgreSQL, at scale.

We'll review what solutions exist today for achieving this, how they interact with Kubernetes concepts such as Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs), and what matters when deciding to pick a solution, or when building your own.

The target audience for this talk is both folks that need a database like PostgreSQL to run at scale, with many servers, as well as those that are just starting out, but may have an interest in topics such as how to provide a database for micro services in a Kubernetes environment.
