Postgres OperatorGet Postgres up and running on your Kubernetes cluster

Self-service tools for developers and data scientists to easily get productive with PostgreSQL and Crunchy Data products.

Create a Cluster

Let’s create a simple Postgres cluster. You can do this by executing the following command:

kubectl apply -k kustomize/postgres

This will create a Postgres cluster named hippo in the postgres-operator namespace.

To track on the progress of the cluster, you can run:

kubectl -n postgres-operator describe hippo

This command is not shown in terminal due to the complexity of the response, but you can find more info about the kubectl describe command in the docs.
