by Roopesh Shenoy on Nov 18, 2013 |

Amazon RDS adds PostgreSQL to the list of databases supported by the service. The launch supports Postgres version 9.3.1 with plans to support new versions as they become available.

A single Postgres RDS instance can scale up to 3 TB of data and 30,000 IOPS. Key Supported features are -

  • All the normally supported RDS features such as Multi-AZ Deployments, Provisioned IOPS, Virtual Private Cloud, Automated Backups, Point-in-time Recovery and Cross-Region Snapshot copy
  • PostGIS spatial database extender
  • PL/Perl, PL/Tcl and PL/pgSQL languages
  • Full-text search dictionaries (dict_int, dict_xsyn and unaccent)
  • Advanced Data-types such as Hstore, JSON
  • dblink that supports connections to other PostgreSQL databases from within a database session 

You can learn more about all the extensions supported in the official documentation.

Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) is a web service that makes it easy to set up, operate and scale a relational database in the cloud. RDS already supports other database engines such as MySQL, Oracle and SQL Server.
