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.
Benefits of Aiven’s PostgreSQL® as-a-service
No one wants to spend an entire day getting databases set up or running maintenance checks. Or installing security patches, upgrades, and generally making sure things don’t break as you scale them.
With Aiven’s hosted and managed-for-you PostgreSQLⓇ, you can spin up your clusters in as fast as a mouse click — so you stop burning hours managing DBs and get back to focusing on your code.
Automatic updates and upgrades. Zero stress.
Stressing about applying maintenance updates or version upgrades to your clusters? Do them both in a single click from your Aiven dashboard. With no interruptions or downtime. Ever.

Downtime is a disaster for critical applications. That’s why Aiven makes sure you get 99.99% uptime. Plus, you get access to a 100% human support team — in case you need a helping hand.
Super-transparent pricing. No networking costs.
Aiven for PostgreSQL comes with all-inclusive pricing. No hidden fees or charges, just one payment that covers networking to data storage, and everything in-between.
Scale up or down as you need.
Increase your storage, get more clusters, or expand to new regions. PostgreSQL has never been this easy.
