Crunchy Data Announces Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification of Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes 4.0

The Popular Deployment Allows Enterprises to Build Open Source PostgreSQL-As-A-Service Platforms

CHARLESTON, S.C. (May 8, 2019) Crunchy Data, the leading provider of trusted open source PostgreSQL technology and support, is pleased to announce that Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes 4.0 has achieved Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification. Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes 4.0 is the latest major release of Crunchy Data’s open source, Kubernetes native PostgreSQL-as-a-Service infrastructure for deploying and managing enterprise, distributed PostgreSQL deployments.

Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes, which includes the Crunchy PostgreSQL Operator 4.0, is packaged with the Operator Lifecycle Manager (OLM), a component of the Operator Framework, to improve the experience for installing and upgrading Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes. Introduced by CoreOS in 2016 and now championed by Red Hat and a large portion of the Kubernetes community, the Operator pattern enables a fundamentally new way to automate infrastructure and application management tasks using Kubernetes as the engine. With Operators, developers and administrators can gain the advantages of the self-service options that public cloud service platforms offer, while enabling the portability of the services across Kubernetes environments regardless of the underlying infrastructure.

Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes 4.0 introduces support for managing PostgreSQL clusters across multiple namespaces from a single Crunchy PostgreSQL Operator instance, providing a new level of security and isolation for PostgreSQL workloads. This version also provides a graphical user interface with familiar database-as-a-service functionality for users who prefer to manage their database workloads from a web-based platform. Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes, which includes the Crunchy PostgreSQL Operator and Crunchy PostgreSQL Container Suite, supports provisioning PostgreSQL clusters, elastic workloads, high-availability, disaster recovery, and enterprise authentication systems.
