StackGres (https://stackgres.io) is an open source project to run Postgres on Kubernetes. This session will cover the most relevant features of StackGres and live demo how to run Postgres on EKS, Managed Prometheus and Grafana services, and using S3 for backups.
StackGres has innovated in many areas to adapt Postgres to Cloud Native, like distributed log servers, using Envoy to proxy Postgres traffic and terminate SSL; or the ability to dynamically load Postgres extensions into the containers.
Business Problem/Use case :
AWS users that want to run their Postgres database alongside their applications in Kubernetes; and/or need Postgres extensions that may not be available in RDS/Aurora, may benefit from using StackGres on EKS.
(note: this paragraph summarizes the use case, but can as well be used as the last part of the session abstract)
StackGres installation on EKS. Creating Postgres clusters. Dynamically loading Postgres extension into the containers. Show the integrated dashboards in Prometheus and Grafana (as provided by AWS Managed Services).
