Benefits of Managed PostgreSQL as a Service
By offloading managing your PostgreSQL database, you can boost security and reduce costs over the long term. Allow us to be the experts of your open source infrastructure so you can focus on other areas of innovation.
PostgreSQL has a unique feature among databases: you can extend the database functionality by using functions. The administrator can create operators, data types, conversions, and just about anything else that exists in the database.
PostgreSQL has the unique ability to install the language of your choice for internal functions.
PostgreSQL databases are both vertically and horizontally scalable. PostgreSQL is hardware-agnostic, and vertical scalability is achieved through solid mathematical algorithm choices in the query engine and efficient management of the memory and file system blocks. PostgreSQL can be scaled horizontally to ensure availability through replication and separate geo-locations
PostgreSQL is a highly concurrent database system. To distinguish between users and provide concurrent services, PostgreSQL uses multi-version concurrency control. This method of managing concurrency keeps a copy of every row in the database which has ever existed, thus providing a consistent view of the data to each connection/observer.
