PostgreSQL...

The world’s most advanced open source relational database
With a 30-year development history, PostgreSQL is stronger than ever, with proven reliability, extensibility, robust features, standards compliance, data integrity, and performance.

Store and manage your data
Run complex applications, manage administrative tasks and create entire environments for both single-user applications and the largest datasets out there.

Jack-of-all-trades
PostgreSQL can form the core database for almost any kind of service, application or system. There are hundreds of open source plug-ins, data wrappers and extensions you can use to extend its core capabilities.

No lock-in
Whenever you want, you’re free to move your data to a different cloud provider or even to a different database system.

+ Aiven for PostgreSQL

Fully managed service
You don’t have to spin up or manage your PostgreSQL nodes - we’ll do it for you. Creating a new service takes less than 10 minutes. Deploy via our web console, API, CLI or Terraform.

Why PostgreSQL?

Today’s applications and services often operate online 24 hours a day. When you buy a new Polynesian nose flute for your collection, you want to see that transaction in your bank account immediately, not sometime tomorrow afternoon.

Most of all, you don’t want to have to think about it. It should just happen. That’s all well and good when it’s just one person, but multiply the number of simultaneous transactions by millions? Things can get a little tricky for the humble database.

This is where a database’s ability to handle concurrency becomes a key issue. And it just so happens that concurrency is something Postgres is very good at. PostgreSQL is fully ACID compliant, and has a solid built-in system for isolating and locking transactions.

In short, it’s an incredibly reliable, easy to use, and multi-talented database. It may not be able to play the Polynesian nose flute yet, but there might be an extension out there to help you catalog your collection...

Plug it in. Charge it up.

The most versatile database
Extensions let you transform Postgres into whatever you want it to be. It’s like Neo in The Matrix. Plug something in, and it becomes something else entirely. It may not be able to learn kung fu, but Java, Python? JSON? XML? No problem. Just plug it in!

Everyone’s welcome, no matter how different your data is
Working with a bunch of other software? PostgreSQL’s foreign data wrappers allow you to hook PostgreSQL into anything you want.

Tweak it ‘till it’s perfect
Modify, edit, create, copy, customize – you’re free to do anything, and everything is free. If it doesn’t quite do what you want, roll up your sleeves and get coding.

A huge community of users
PostgreSQL users develop new extensions and interoperability on an almost daily basis. That special data hook you need? It’s probably already been created.

Stay safe with Aiven
At Aiven, we put a huge emphasis on keeping your data safe. That’s why we offer a hand picked,
best-of-breed collection of extensions, tested for security and reliability.

Free vs. Managed PostgreSQL

Open source means totally free, right?
While PostgreSQL is free, you’ll have to buy all the hardware and other systems you need to put it to use, and you’ll probably need software engineers or data architects to manage, monitor, and maintain it. All of this can take a lot of time - meaning that you lose days or weeks of valuable development time.

The fully managed solution
With Aiven for PostgreSQL, all of the laborious data management, maintenance, and backups are taken care of. You simply select a cloud service, choose your optimum storage and processing power, and get on with developing your applications.

Aiven has you covered
We have the right plan for you, no matter how big or small your workload is. Pricing is all-inclusive – cloud hosting and all network and backup storage costs are included. No surprise fees.
