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. Aiven AI database optimizer provides insight on performance and automatic index and SQL rewrite suggestions.

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 with a couple of clicks — so you can 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.


99.99% uptime. 100% human support.

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.
