Crunchy PGO is super cool but I'm not sure how we got to the idea that it's not that complex compared to a managed service like RDS.

Coming from someone at Crunchy I don't disagree on the notion of managed service being easier than running/managing yourself inside Kubernetes. Clicking a button and having things taken care of you is great.

Though personally I do feel like much of the managed services have not evolved/changed/improved since their inception many years ago. There is definitely some opportunity here to innovate, though that's probably not actually coupled with running it in K8s itself.

I don't think anyone would argue that RDS isn't vastly simpler. If it weren't, there'd be no reason to pay such a premium for it.
