“Zaphod felt he was teetering on the edge of madness and wondered if he shouldn't just jump over and have done with it.” - Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Do you ever feel like Zaphod while managing hundreds of PostgreSQL clusters within a Kubernetes or OpenShift environment? Do you long for a simplified way to manage them with singular commands rather than issuing dozens of repetitive commands or writing up complicated bash scripts? Is "Oh no, not again" an hourly thought in your head?

There's a solution: the PostgreSQL Operator for Kubernetes, which is an open source project developed by Crunchy Data that resides on GitHub. https://github.com/CrunchyData/postgres-operator/

Join me as I discuss what the Operator is, why you should use it, what the primary advantages are, and how it works before finishing up with a general overview of the commands and functionality of the Operator.
