Leave the complexity of PostgreSQL administration to us. We’ll handle setting up, backing up, and updating — so you can focus on building great apps.
Quickly and easily spin up a high-performance PostgreSQL cluster.
Launch a PostgreSQL cluster with just a few clicks and then access it via our simplified UI or an API. Never worry about maintenance operations or updates – we handle that for you.
Scale up at anytime to support your business growth. Easily spin up read- only nodes to scale read operations.
Your data is critical. That’s why we ensure it’s backed up automatically every day. Restore data to any point within the previous seven days.
Databases run in your account’s private network, which isolates communication at the account or team level. Requests via the public internet can still reach your database, but only if you whitelist specific inbound sources. Data is also encrypted in transit and at rest.
In the event of a failure, Managed Databases will automatically switch data handling to a standby node to minimize downtime.
Managed Databases run on enterprise-class hardware giving you lightning-fast performance. Run your clusters on Droplets (cloud VMs) with shared vCPUs or choose Droplets with 100% dedicated vCPUs for mission critical workloads.
Managed Databases for PostgreSQL are exactly what we were looking for. In the past, we did backups with cron, but now we have a secondary node ready in case of failure. The implementation was really easy and quick.

Understand database performance, resource usage, and errors so that you can efficiently size, scale, and tune your PostgreSQL cluster.
Managed Databases include critical database-level metrics, such as connections, cache hit ratio, sequential vs indexed scans, throughput, and more.
Cache hit ratio is the percent of reads from the database in-memory cache, as opposed to disk, and is ideally about 99%.
Managed Databases also include cluster resource utilization metrics like CPU, load average, memory usage, and disk usage.
Disk usage is the percent of disk used by all nodes in the cluster. While it will fluctuate, you should maintain disk usage below 90%.
Set alerts on database resource usage, and get notified via email or Slack.
