I’m going to begin our video series here on the Project Atomic blog with a video of my presentation from KubeCon 2016, Full Automatic Database. This presentation explains the design of a prototype high availability version of PostgreSQL, using Kubernetes on Atomic Host.

In addition to sharing the video with you, this also explains a bit how I got into containers starting from the world of databases. Container infrastructures, particularly orchestrators like Kubernetes, offer a lot of opportunities to make up for the lack of automation in the database platform.

Right now, my little project for this is just a prototype. I’m working on some upstream dependencies in order to make it fully bulletproof and feature-complete. I’ll be posting more about that later.

More videos on this blog weekly from here on out.
