postgres support for database - nova
Last modified: 2014-09-08 01:39:06 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #816316 +++
Description of problem:
Presently upstream OpenStack primarily utilizes mysql for its database. We'd like to expand this to include postgres in addition. There are probably some integration issues/small problems with running Postgres w/ Essex today, and these bugs will need to be tracked and individually resolved separately.
This bug is specifically for tracking the overall support of Postgres, and as such is a TestOnly bug.

Dan, how well does Folsom work with PostgreSQL?
Any blocking issues preventing us fully support postgres for RHOS 2.1 GA?
Any update here ? It's been a while.
We use SQLAlchemy as a DB portability layer. We run the upstream devstack-gate test suite using postgres for every proposed commit, and the code isn't allowed in until it passes. And whenever someone proposes doing something MySQL-specific, we make sure there's a fallback path for postgres.
So I think postgres support is in pretty good shape right now. That said, there may be edge cases that nobody has thought to test.
