Kubernetes Orchestration for Highly Available PostgreSQL and BDR
Cloud-Native Integration for Enterprises using PostgreSQL
2ndQuadrant is the first, and currently the only PostgreSQL support and services provider to be recognized by the Cloud-Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP).
We provide Kubernetes consulting for open source PostgreSQL, as well as the popular BDR extension. Our team of Certified Kubernetes Administrators (CKA), with expertise in container and orchestration technologies, is ready to help enterprises move to a Cloud Native platform while complying with the strict set of rules provided by CNCF.
Whether you rely on the Public Cloud or intend to retain full control of your data in a Private Cloud environment, 2ndQuadrant will go through all the phases of the journey with you. In a Private Cloud environment, this may include hardware setup and validation, Kubernetes installation, monitoring, CI and delivery pipelines, deployments of applications, and database systems — all based on PostgreSQL and BDR.
2ndQuadrant offers training to introduce the paradigm of immutable infrastructure as a new way of thinking about applications, IT processes, and systems, in general, using Kubernetes. Starting with basics on Docker, the training walks through the main concepts of using Kubernetes to deploy stateless applications. With a focus on PostgreSQL, it then lays the foundation for stateful applications that require data persistence.
The course is suitable for Site Reliability Engineers, Developers, and Database Administrators who want to learn the PostgreSQL on Kubernetes use case – both in public and private cloud environments.
The class is not meant to address CKA and CKAD certification paths but helps set a solid knowledge about PostgreSQL on Kubernetes.
2ndQuadrant’s world-renowned 24/7 support for PostgreSQL is available on Kubernetes clusters that have been setup by 2ndQuadrant. We provide consulting to help deploy PostgreSQL using Kubernetes in your environment. Our staff has helped a large number of our clients migrate to PostgreSQL – planning a secure, robust, on-time and on-budget path to adoption.
Global coverage with local presence ensures that a PostgreSQL expert will respond within 15 minutes to address your issue, providing a workaround in 4 hours and a bug fix within 24 hours.
Why Kubernetes from 2ndQuadrant?
2ndQuadrant is a member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and is the first Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) for PostgreSQL. With a relationship based on trust, enterprises can rely on 2ndQuadrant to bring in the necessary expertise to guide them on their Kubernetes journey.
Combining 2ndQuadrant PostgreSQL expertise with the new Cloud paradigm of immutable infrastructure of Kubernetes allows us to deliver the best experience when moving PostgreSQL into a public or private Cloud environment.
2ndQuadrant provides PostgreSQL solutions for the Enterprise. Our support engineers have over 100 years of combined code contributions to the PostgreSQL project, making us the only company to contribute enterprise features to all of the last 13 releases.
This is paired with 17+ years of hands-on experience through client engagements and allows us to integrate customized solutions with our customers – making 2ndQuadrant the Gold Standard for PostgreSQL products & services.
What is Kubernetes and why should I be interested?
Kubernetes is an open source orchestration tool to deploy software in a pre-defined, self healing configuration; reducing the need for operations staff and helping organizations become Cloud-Native. It is the strategic choice for making multiple servers work together in a complex architecture or cluster.
Why do organizations choose Kubernetes?
There are several factors why high performing organizations choose Kubernetes, including:
Abstraction of the infrastructure layer, removing differences between development and production environments. This enables developers to focus on programming new features for their applications rather than worrying about infrastructure.
Founded on DevOps principles of declarative configuration, immutable infrastructure (based on artifacts like containers automatically produced by continuous integration and delivery pipelines). These are designed to boost feature velocity without compromising quality.
Native self-healing capabilities
On-demand up/down scaling
Specifically for PostgreSQL, what is the significance of Kubernetes?
Kubernetes allows you to define and deploy a pre-approved and certified configuration for PostgreSQL that is highly available and self-healing. Once defined, users of this orchestration will have an easy, automated, & repeatable process to deploy PostgreSQL in the said configuration. They can rely on the deployment to be configured for organizational needs. This means that sophisticated software (like PostgreSQL and BDR) can be adopted easily and quickly by developers.
