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 postgresclusters.postgres-operator.crunchydata.com 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.
