OPEN TALK: Running PostgreSQL Databases in a Cloud Native Environment with Kubernetes


Gabriele Bartolini
EDB, VP, Cloud Native

A long time open-source programmer and entrepreneur, Gabriele has a degree in Statistics from the University of Florence. After having consistently contributed to the growth of 2ndQuadrant and its members through nurturing a lean and devops culture, he is now leading the Cloud Native initiative at EDB. Gabriele lives in Prato, a small but vibrant city located in the northern part of Tuscany, Italy – famous for having hosted the first European PostgreSQL conferences. His second home is Melbourne, Australia, where he studied at Monash University and worked in the ICT sector. He loves playing the Blues with his Fender Stratocaster, but his major passions are called Elisabeth and Charlotte!


This talk is the perfect opportunity for you to see where Cloud Native PostgreSQL, developed by EDB, is currently standing and how it can be integrated in your Kubernetes and OpenShift Container Platform workloads.

Cloud Native PostgreSQL is built on solid concepts and principles such as immutable infrastructure, declarative configuration and application containers, making it also ideal to use in your CI/CD pipelines as part of the applications’ E2E tests.

Join me to discover how our operators adapt to public/private/hybrid environments, how core features such as self-healing, high-availability, scalability and updates work, and – last but not least – what our DevSecOps culture and processes have produced in the area of security.
