    "Fully Featured Kubernetes Operator to Create and Manage PostgreSQL clusters."

    What do you like best?

    It's resilient & portable across clouds

    What do you dislike?

    In some cases extending the operator requires forking the open source repository. Support for plugins could solve this issue for many users.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    Render has been using Crunchy’s PostgreSQL Operator to power our PostgreSQL database as a service product for over 2 years and we've been very happy with its performance so far. There's a few competing offerings but we decided to go with Crunchy as they met all our feature requirements, had very good documentation, and their commercial interests aligned well with their open source offerings. I also really like the fact that we haven't been forced into any sort of vendor lock in. It’s been quite easy to use the components we want and ignore the ones that don’t fit our use case. We've found it straightforward to hook into the operator and extend its functionality when required. Finally, the operator is quite resilient and portable across clouds. We haven’t run into any major issues in production that stemmed from the operator's codebase. As Render has expanded its services across multiple regions and clouds we haven’t had to tailor our use of Crunchy's PostgreSQL operator to any particular region or cloud.

    Very knowledgeable company. Incredibly supportive.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    This was a build vs. buy decision. We have the expertise in house to provide PostgreSQL in containers for kubernetes. But why reinvent the wheel? Crunchy Data had already done it exceedingly well. It was a no brainer.

    "Great HA PostgreSQL cluster for K8s clusters - Must for Container World."

    What do you like best?

    It contains High Availability PostgreSQL deployments and the amazing thing is that you have all the components form Crunchy, HA environment, backup and restore and of course monitoring tools to check issues and performance from your databases. Also you have the option to deploy Crunchy as a Database Service in the k8s clusters or you can use database per namespace. There is a way with helm charts to deploy,operator and PostgreSQL clusters in your CI/CD pipelines. It is must for container world and you can manage and do all the operational tasks in the databases environment as usual.++++++`

    What do you dislike?

    It is nice to have Migration tool for the database, it is important to have a tool that helps you guide and automate your database migration to Crunchy Data Operator PostgreSQL Cluster online with minimal downtime.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    To create HA environment for PostgreSQL and to make automatic deployments.
