Hi. I’m looking to deploy a new project over the next couple of weeks, and I need a Postgres database. I signed up for the Managed Database Services beta back in October, and I’ll want to use it as soon as it becomes available.

If I spin up a PostgreSQL droplet today (following the DO instructions) how easy will it be to migrate that to a Managed instance once I get access to the beta?
