- Standalone PostgreSQL using Omnibus GitLab
- Provide your own PostgreSQL instance
- PostgreSQL replication and failover with Omnibus GitLab
In this section, you’ll be guided through configuring a PostgreSQL database to be used with GitLab in one of our reference architectures. There are essentially three setups to choose from.
This setup is for when you have installed the Omnibus GitLab packages (CE or EE), to use the bundled PostgreSQL having only its service enabled.
This setup is for when you have installed GitLab using the Omnibus GitLab Enterprise Edition (EE) package.
All the tools that are needed like PostgreSQL, PgBouncer, and Patroni are bundled in the package, so you can use it to set up the whole PostgreSQL infrastructure (primary, replica).
