Day Two Tasks

Working through the Basic Setup showed you how to install Crunchy Postgres for Kubernetes and how to get a Postgres cluster up and running. You now have the power to deploy a Postgres cluster to production running on Kubernetes! However there are a few questions you should be asking yourself.

  • Am I prepared to monitor and support this cluster?
  • How will I know if my cluster is running out of resources?
  • How can I protect against infrastructure outages?
  • What if I need to change some configuration settings on my running cluster?

In the Day Two tutorials, we will show you how to install our monitoring stack, so that you can track the health of your cluster and anticipate problems before they arise. In our High Availability tutorial, we'll show you how easy it is to add replicas to your cluster and tailor your topology to mitigate downtime. Do you need to further customize your cluster for situations we haven't covered? We will show you how to Customize a Postgres Cluster.
