Project FAQ

What is The PGO Project?

The PGO Project is the open source project associated with the development of PGO, the Postgres Operator for Kubernetes from Crunchy Data.

PGO is a Kubernetes Operator, providing a declarative solution for managing your PostgreSQL clusters. Within a few moments, you can have a Postgres cluster complete with high availability, disaster recovery, and monitoring, all over secure TLS communications.

PGO is the upstream project from which Crunchy Postgres for Kubernetes is derived. You can find more information on Crunchy Postgres for Kubernetes here.

What’s the difference between PGO and Crunchy Postgres for Kubernetes?

PGO is the Postgres Operator from Crunchy Data. It developed pursuant to the PGO Project and is designed to be a frequently released, fast-moving project where all new development happens.

Crunchy Postgres for Kubernetes is produced by taking selected releases of PGO, combining them with Crunchy Certified PostgreSQL and PostgreSQL containers certified by Crunchy Data, maintained for commercial support, and made available to customers as the Crunchy Postgres for Kubernetes offering.

Under which open source license is PGO source code available?

The PGO source code is available under the Apache License 2.0.

Where are the release tags for PGO v5?

With PGO v5, we've made some changes to our overall process. Instead of providing quarterly release tags as we did with PGO v4, we're focused on ongoing active development in the v5 primary development branch (master, which will become main). Consistent with our practices in v4, previews of stable releases with the release tags are made available in the Crunchy Data Developer Portal.

These changes allow for more rapid feature development and releases in the upstream PGO project, while providing Crunchy Postgres for Kubernetes users with stable releases for production use.
