The zone-redundant high availability automates maintenance, patching, and updates. Provision in minutes and independently scale compute or storage. Decrease costs with comprehensive database monitoring and optimization tools. Take advantage of intelligent performance recommendations to help ensure peak performance.

Migrate to an open-source PostgreSQL database

Migrate with ease using a fully managed PostgreSQL database with support for the latest versions. Build with your favorite PostgreSQL extensions such as Cron, PostGIS, and PLV8, and popular frameworks and languages like Ruby on Rails, Python with Django, Java with Spring Boot, and Node.js. Take advantage of Microsoft open-source database resources, including GitHub and the PostgreSQL extension (preview) for Azure Data Studio.

Optimize value with a lower total cost of ownership

Realize up to 62 percent lower total cost of ownership when you migrate to Azure Database for PostgreSQL. Get operational savings from decreased infrastructure and open-source database management, and from simplified security and availability. Take advantage of stop/start features, a burstable service tier, and reserved instances for savings, and pay for storage only when your database has stopped running. Simplify deployment and operations and scale faster.

Accelerate innovation to develop and deploy apps faster

Innovate faster with increased productivity and simplified end to end deployment experience. Utilize tight integration with PostgreSQL extensions and reduce time to market through interoperability with Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and Azure App ServicePower BI, and more.
