Crunchy PostgreSQL Operator Open Service Broker (pgo-osb)

Latest Release: v4.1.0, 2019-11-21

General

The pgo-osb project is an implementation of the Open Service Broker API. This implementation uses the Crunchy PostgreSQL Operator as a means to provision services, in this case the service is a PostgreSQL database cluster.

pgo-osb allows users to also bind to a service instance which when invoked will return PostgreSQL credentials to a user they can use to connect to the PostgreSQL database instance.

Also, users can deprovision a PostgreSQL database cluster using the OSB API.

The pgo-osb broker was developed using the OSB Starter Pack and associated libraries.

See the following:

Compatibility

Starting with pgo-osb version 4.0.0, the release schedule and version number for pgo-osb will be aligned with the release schedule and version number for the the Crunchy PostgreSQL Operator. Therefore, to ensure compatibility between pgo-osb and the PostgreSQL Operator, please ensure the version number for pgo-osb matches the version number of the PostgreSQL Operator deployed in your environment. For instance, if you are using pgo-osb v4.1.0, please ensure the Crunchy PostgreSQL Operator v4.1.0 is also deployed in your environment.

Prerequisites

golang 1.9 or above is required to build this project.

Running the pgo-osb service broker assumes you have successfully deployed the PostgreSQL Operator. See the PostgreSQL Operator documentation for documentation on deploying the PostgreSQL Operator:

https://access.crunchydata.com/documentation/postgres-operator/

Please note that if pgo-osb is deployed to a different namespace than the PostgreSQL Operator, DNS must be utilized when specifying the URL for the PostgreSQL Operator API server. This is done using environment variable PGO_APISERVER_URL in the pgo-osb deployment.yaml file (located in directory $OSB_ROOT/deploy). For instance, if the PostgreSQL Operator is deployed to namespace pgo, the PGO_APISERVER_URL environment variable would be set in this file as follows:

- --PGO_APISERVER_URL
- "https://postgres-operator.pgo.svc.cluster.local:8443"

However, if pgo-osb is deployed to the same namespace as the PostgreSQL Operator, then the PostgreSQL Operator service name can simply be utilized:

- --PGO_APISERVER_URL
- "https://postgres-operator:8443"

Additionally, pgo-osb must also be configured with the certificates needed to properly authenticate into and trust the PostgreSQL Operator API server. When installing the PostgreSQL Operator API server these certificates are automatically generated, and must be copied into directory $OSB_ROOT/deploy prior to deploying pgo-osb. This allows the certificates to be stored in a secret that can be utilized by pgo-osb when accessing the PostgreSQL Operator API server. For instance, if the PostgreSQL Operator was installed using the bash installation method, the certificates can be copied as follows:

cp $PGOROOT/conf/postgres-operator/server.crt $PGOROOT/conf/postgres-operator/server.key $OSB_ROOT/deploy

Or if the PostgreSQL Operator was installed using Ansible, then the certificates can be copied from your home directory as follows:

cp "${HOME}"/.pgo/"${PGO_OPERATOR_NAMESPACE}"/output/server.crt $OSB_ROOT/deploy
cp "${HOME}"/.pgo/"${PGO_OPERATOR_NAMESPACE}"/output/server.pem $OSB_ROOT/deploy/server.key

This example also assumes you have created a Kube namespace called demo. Adjust OSB_NAMESPACE to suit your specific namespace value. And lastly, the example assumes you are using the PostgreSQL Operator default RBAC account called username with a password of password. If this is not the case then you will need to adjust the example service instance service-instance.yaml.

Operator Configuration

The standalone and ha service plans require custom storage and container resource configurations in the PostgreSQL Operator's pgo.yaml definition. Refer to the Operator documentation:

https://access.crunchydata.com/documentation/postgres-operator/latest/configuration/pgo-yaml-configuration/

The Open Service Broker will request custom storage and container resources corresponding to the size of plan, using the names osbsmall, osbmedium, osblarge. For example, the standalone_md plan will use disk sizes defined by the osbmedium custom storage definition and the memory and CPU limits defined by the osbmedium container resource definition.

Example configuration descriptions:

Storage:
  osbsmall:
    AccessMode:  <based on environment>
    Size:  300M
    StorageType:  <based on environment>
    StorageClass:  <based on environment>
    Fsgroup:  26
  osbmedium:
    AccessMode:  <based on environment>
    Size:  600M
    StorageType:  <based on environment>
    StorageClass:  <based on environment>
    Fsgroup:  26
  osblarge:
    AccessMode:  <based on environment>
    Size:  2G
    StorageType:  <based on environment>
    StorageClass:  <based on environment>
    Fsgroup:  26
ContainerResources:
  osbsmall:
    RequestsMemory:  512Mi
    RequestsCPU:  0.1
    LimitsMemory:  512Mi
    LimitsCPU:  1.0
  osbmedium:
    RequestsMemory:  1Gi
    RequestsCPU:  0.5
    LimitsMemory:  1Gi
    LimitsCPU:  2.0
  osblarge:
    RequestsMemory:  2Gi
    RequestsCPU:  1.0
    LimitsMemory:  2Gi
    LimitsCPU:  4.0

Build

To build the pgo-osb broker, place these additional environment variables into your .bashrc as they are used in the various scripts and deployment templates:

export GOPATH=$HOME/odev
export GOBIN=$GOPATH/bin
export PATH=$GOBIN:$PATH
export OSB_NAMESPACE=demo
export OSB_CMD=kubectl
export OSB_ROOT=$GOPATH/src/github.com/crunchydata/pgo-osb
export OSB_BASEOS=centos7
export OSB_VERSION=4.1.0
export OSB_IMAGE_TAG=$OSB_BASEOS-$OSB_VERSION
export OSB_IMAGE_PREFIX=crunchydata

Install the dep dependency tool:

mkdir $GOPATH/bin $GOPATH/src/github.com/crunchydata $GOPATH/pkg -p
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/golang/dep/master/install.sh | sh

Get the code:

cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/crunchydata
git clone https://github.com/crunchydata/pgo-osb.git
cd pgo-osb

Deploy Service Catalog

Install the service catalog into your Kubernetes cluster by following this link:

https://svc-cat.io/docs/install/

Instructions on that link are provided to also install the very useful svcat utility for inspecting and working with the service catalog.

Deploy

Deploy the pgo-osb broker:

make setup
make image
make deploy

Verify your deployment has been successful with:

kubectl get pod --selector=app=pgo-osb

which has output similar to:

NAME                       READY     STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
pgo-osb-69c76578b9-v7s9k   1/1       Running   0          16m

Working with the pgo-osb

To use the pgo-osb broker, please follow the following instructions.

                    standalone_md                 

Note: Additional services installed in your environment may be listed as well.

Create a Service Instance

cd $OSB_ROOT
make provision
kubectl get serviceinstance
make provision2
kubectl get serviceinstance

Please note the ServiceInstance objects created when running the make provision and make provision2 commands above will create PostgreSQL cluster's in the default namespace set for the PostgreSQL Operator according to the PGO_NAMESPACE environment variable set in your environment. If you would like the clusters to be provisioned in another namespace, please set the proper namespace using the PGO_NAMESPACE parameter in files $OSB_ROOT/manifests/service-instance.yaml and $OSB_ROOT/manifests/service-instance2.yaml.

You should see a pod with that service instance name:

kubectl get pod --selector=name=testinstance
kubectl get pod --selector=name=testinstance2

Create a Binding

make bind
kubectl get servicebinding
make bind2
kubectl get servicebinding

Display the Binding with Secrets

You can view the binding and the generated Postgres credentials using this command:

svcat describe binding testinstance-binding -n $OSB_NAMESPACE

which has output similar to:

  Name:        testinstance-binding
