  • 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.
