~Presentation Title~
Crunchy PostgreSQL Operator: Your Elastic Open Source Database Platform

The maturation of containerization platforms has changed how people think about creating development environments and has eliminated many inefficiencies for deploying applications. These concepts and technologies have made its way into the PostgreSQL ecosystem as well, and open source projects like the Crunchy PostgreSQL Operator now let teams to run their own “database-as-a-service” on the infrastructure of their choosing.

In this talk, which centers around demos, we will see how you can get PostgreSQL up and running in a containerized environment with some advanced sidecars in only a few steps! We will then build out a larger production environment on OpenShift with the Crunchy PostgreSQL Operator and see how it can scale to help you manage thousands of databases, effectively letting you run our own database-as-a-service!
