OpenStack runs one of the largest automated testing environments ever publicly viewed. Some might say you can even see it from space.

Until recently, Zuul has been focused entirely on OpenStack's CI space, but many users have sprouted from that. With v3.0 just around the corner, Zuul is ready to take on a wider community and scale your CI to the moon.

Topic: PostgreSQL

In this talk, I will describe what a Kubernetes Operator is, how it is used within a containerized PostgreSQL environment, and the various features found in a reference implementation of an operator. Operators are useful in building an orchestration layer on top of a container platform such as Kubernetes. Orchestration features such as backup, restore, cloning, and upgrades will be highlighted. An operator is an extension of a cloud based PostgreSQL deployment and would be of interest to companies deploying PostgreSQL on cloud environments.
