An Easy Recipe for Creating a PostgreSQL Cluster with Docker Swarm

One of the biggest benefits of running PostgreSQL is running your cluster in primary-replica setup for the purposes of high-availability or load balancing your read-only queries.  It is not necessarily simple to deploy a primary-replica setup out of the box, but by using modern containerization technology, we can greatly simplify the process.

While I was trying to find things to experiment with using Docker, one of our engineers gave me a recipe to setup PostgreSQL 10 and pgAdmin 4 easily and quickly.  It was so simple, I thought it would be fun to share it!
