EDB™ Postgres Containers and Integration with Google Kubernetes Engine

EDB Postgres Platform for Containers allows you to use a docker-formatted container to deploy and manage EDB Postgres Advanced Server (Advanced Server) and supporting components in a Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) environment. GKE automation provides an environment in which you can easily:

  • Deploy or disable Advanced Server instances as needed.
  • Automatically scale an Advanced Server instance to meet application requirements.
  • Easily ensure Failover Manager protection for your data.
  • Utilize load balancing to distribute read/write requests across available servers.
  • Deploy Advanced Server instances with custom configurations in a container environment.

The EDB Postgres Platform for Containers automates the deployment of containers that include Advanced Server and the following supporting components:

  • EDB Failover Manager (EFM)
  • EDB Postgres Backup and Recovery Tool (BART)
  • pgPool (connection pooling for Postgres databases)
