How it works

What is PostgreSQL like with Aiven?

Set up fully managed PostgreSQL in less than 10 minutes — directly from our web console or programmatically via our API, CLI, Terraform provider or Kubernetes operator. Our stand-by nodes act automatically as read replicas, and you can also create additional read replicas in different public clouds and regions, even building multi-cloud architectures. Our Point-In-Time-Recovery lets you restore your data to any time within your selected retention period.

Build advanced applications with Aiven for PostgreSQL

A fully managed SQL relational database, deployable in the cloud of your choice. Known for reliability, a robust set of features, and exceptionally high performance. Fits well for almost any case, such as creating location-based services, mission critical business applications or simply as a general transactional database.

Create flexible read replicas

Replicate data to other regions and clouds for disaster recovery and geo proximity - even building multi-cloud architectures. Even our standard high-availability plans come with 1 or 2 standby nodes, which also act as automatic read replicas.

Integrate your PostgreSQL with other Aiven services

Expose your server or service specific metrics to external endpoints to monitor the health of your PostgreSQL cluster.
