Aiven for PostgreSQL

About Aiven for PostgreSQL

Aiven for PostgreSQL is a fully managed, scalable PostgreSQL service. It is cloud-native, full-featured, and backed by a 99.99% SLA. You can launch a fully operational PostgreSQL cluster in the cloud and region of your choice in minutes. You'll have access to premium features, such as Point in Time Restore, database forking, connection pooling, Terraform/ Kubernetes tooling and more. There are over 70 PostgreSQL extensions available, including TimescaleDB.

With Aiven for PostgreSQL, you don’t need to worry about taking backups or applying maintenance updates. All this is done automatically - with no downtime. You can upgrade to a new version, increase the storage of your cluster, expand to new regions or migrate to a different cloud, with a click of a mouse and again with no downtime. Data is encrypted at rest and in transit, and clusters are always run on dedicated virtual machines. The service is ISO27001, SOC 2, HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA and PCI/DSS compliant.

Aiven for PostgreSQL can easily be integrated with other Aiven services, or external applications. You can integrate with Aiven for Kafka to support Change Data Capture (CDC), with Aiven for Flink for event stream processing or with Aiven for ClickHouse for high-performance analytical data warehousing. Expose your service logs and metrics to tools like Datadog, Prometheus, AWS CloudWatch, Elasticsearch, and more — or to Aiven services for M3, Grafana and OpenSearch — for enhanced monitoring and logging.

An excellent, full-featured database provider

Reviewed on 02/10/2019

Pros

The general ease of operation for:
- Spinning up new databases
- Scaling up
- Scaling down
- Migrating to a different region
- Restoring backups
Is really great. It's amazing how many features you get out of the box.
The plans with redundancy are also cool because you get full access to the slave as a read-only replica, this means you can run heavy select queries without putting load on the main database.
There is a very significant "it just works" factor to it, which is not something I would imagine myself saying about a database provider so easily.

Cons

They are not the cheapest
Monitoring/alerting options were a bit lackluste, but this has improved recently.

Extremely esay to use and get started with in seconds. Very helpful support if so be needed and a very reliable service.

Pros

It's incredibly easy to spin up a postgreSQL instance and start being productive. Everything from creating a secure password to SSL-certificates are handled automatically. Point in time backups make you confident to use and test without gambling hours of work and for the serious tests and development environments - spin up a replica by forking the database with the press of a button!

Cons

It is a bit expensive if you need more disk space, which isn't unusual when dealing with data and databases.
