PostgreSQL High Availability¶
This chart provides this as an example only. For true production environments please consider your cloud provider's offerings or deploying the PostgreSQL-HA separately.
This chart supports the deployment of PostgreSQL in a Highly Available (HA) fashion as provided by the Bitnami PostgreSQL-HA chart. To enable HA PostgreSQL use the following values:
postgresql: enabled: false postgresqlha: enabled: true postgresql: password: "change-me" repmgrPassword: "change-me" postgresPassword: "change-me" pgpool: adminPassword: "change-me"
It is important to note all 4 passwords as they will be required during an upgrade. PostgreSQL supports existing secrets as well when configured with the following values:
This secret can be created with:
kubectl create secret generic my-secret --from-literal=admin-password=change-me --from-literal=postgresql-password=change-me --from-literal=postgresql-postgres-password=change-me --from-literal=repmgr-password=change-me
This helm chart's support for PostgreSQL HA is still in an early alpha/beta phase you should use this feature cautiously.
