PostgreSQL on K8 with Operator

SASIKUMAR Devaraj
Hi All

Greetings.

I am looking for advise of running Postgres in K8 along with Operator.  Which Operator will be best for this solution? Is any company running the similar setup in Production?

Regards,
Sasi

Hi Sasi,

Thank you for reaching out.

You will need to either contact individual companies that provide PostgreSQL services (you can google them or take a look here: https://www.postgresql.org/support/professional_support/) or you can also reach out to the community through Slack (postgresteam.slack.com) or Telegram (https://t.me/pg_sql) channels where individual consultants might be able to help.

We can't recommend a specific operator or comment on their expertise. 

Kind regards,
Valeria

Re: PostgreSQL on K8 with Operator

Hello,

Just a question related to the list at: https://www.postgresql.org/support/professional_support/, is there any curation done for this listing?

I just wonder about a list that includes both well-established experts that focus on PostgreSQL (ex. EDB, Crunchy Data, Data Egret, PostgreSQL Experts, etc.) when companies with 1 employee and without a working website are also on that listing (ex. PostgreSQL International). Seems like there should be some basic standards for being listed, for example: you are a registered business, you have more than one employee (ie. you haven't just created a name for your one-person consultancy, there could be a separate listing for independent consultants), you have a working website and up-to-date contact information, you follow PostgreSQL community standards/OSS policies, etc.

There also seem to be a number of companies that would be difficult to categorize as "PostgreSQL specialists" considering the breadth of their work and expertise, ex. Heroku, Savoir-Faire Linux, Web Global Net, Moki Systems, etc. yet they are on that list.  This could be the start of a slippery slope.

Personally, I would struggle to pick out a reputable company with real expertise/focus on PostgreSQL from that listing at present, if I did not have any other familiarity with the companies.

Sincerely,
Katie

Just a quick point. It is up to the purchaser of services to vet the services for their needs. 
One size does not fit all, especially in this open source community. 
Disparaging 1-person business would lose great resources as well as steady income for talented people.

Not beyond that the moderator will verify that they are providing *some* PostgreSQL service when they sign up. There is unfortunately no recurring check of companies if they*still* provide it, they are only validated at signup time.

Jonathan has done one or two big reviews with long intervals in between, but that's not really a sustainable way to handle it either. Getting that fixed with a proper long term solution is definitely on the todo list, just that we haven't figured out exactly what's needed yet.

There is a 2-part article that compares operators from Zalando, Crunchy, KubeDB and StackGres.io (unfortunately only in Russian, but Google Translate and its alternatives do job well nowadays) 

All of them are being developed very actively, so I recommend defining your own goals and making your own tests (plus, maybe talking to developers on your own needs to see where a good match exists).

Excellent. Will review this and keep updated about our progress. Is anybody aware of any Production is running with PostgreSQL,K8 and Operator today?

Looking at that Community Slack just now, it seems to only allow logins
by people with specific domains as their email address:

   * omniti.com
   * wingspan.com
   * getchef.com
   * pgexperts.com
   * citusdata.com
   * 8kdata.com
   * peoplecall.com
   * enterprisedb.com
   * nabancard.com
   * 2ndquadrant.com
   * circonus.com
   * postgrespro.ru
   * openscg.com

Guessing it's not (yet?) a channel for general contact from Community
members?

That sounds very strange.

I'm not an active user of the slack channel, but I definitely have an account there, and I'm definitely not using any of those addresses. And I'm willing to bet there's a large number of users with gmail addresses there...

Hi Justin,

I was able to log in and don't have an email with either of those domains, so pretty sure it is open for all. 
There are close to 10k people on it, I doubt they all have emails with those domains.

Maybe those domains just get automatically approved, whereas others are manual.

Hmmm, maybe I'm doing something wrong.  Two screenshots attached, to
show
what I'm seeing.

   * 01 - the login page (for existing accounts)
   * 02 - the "create account" page, to create a new account

The "create account" page only allows specific domains, though it has a
note to "Contact the workspace administrator at Postgres for an
invitation."
for all others.  With no actual link to contact info for the workspace
admin. ;)

Hmmm, it does have a "Continue with Google" button though, so I guess
Google users are able to login too?  For me, that's not going to work as
Google locked me out of my account when I moved from the UK to
Australia. :/

Note that this isn't urgent nor important in any way, I was more
checking
the Slack out of curiosity and for general awareness. :)

hmm. I've probably used the Google button when first signed in.
and what happens if you "continue with email"?

Re: PostgreSQL on K8 with Operator

Apologies, I thought it was a separate button for a generic email not from the domain list.
It might be a good idea to check with Slack admins (not sure who that is) to check what they had in mind when restricting number of domains for that channel. Will try to find out.

Thanks to Valeria for sending me an invite to the Slack, I've been able
to
join and chat with the PG Slack owner (@denish, CC'd).

It turns out there's a specific page we should be sending new people for
joining the PG Slack:

   https://postgres-slack.herokuapp.com

That's an app which generates invites to the PG Slack, and doesn't have
a
restriction on email address. :)

(On a semi-related note, the Go language Slack has an app for the same
thing.  Seems a fairly standard approach for larger sized Slacks these
days.)

When checking the website[1] it appears that we link to that URL. Is it
appearing somewhere else on the website where it is not being linked to
that signup form?

Thanks,

Re: PostgreSQL on K8 with Operator

I've sent the incorrect link to Sasi by copying it from the Slack channel directly (since I'm on it).
So guess that's not an issue, unless somebody else does the same as I did and sends the link to a person who doesn't have gmail or a listed domain.  
The chances are quite slim though, I think.
