Azure Database for PostgreSQL - Flexible Server now generally available

Published date: November 30, 2021

Flexible Server is a new deployment option that provides more control and flexibility over databases, zone resilient high availability, cost optimization controls, and competitive ready to use performance/latency. 

Flexible Server provides maximum control through custom maintenance windows and additional configuration parameters for fine grained tuning. You can now benefit from zone redundant high availability and control the timing for patches and upgrades.  Deploying a new server is simpler with a guided experience. 

You can also optimize total cost of ownership with burstable instances for your servers and stop/start capabilities that enable you to only pay for compute when the server is in use. Flexible Server is also fully compatible with community PostgreSQL, available with PostgreSQL 11, 12, and 13 support, and can be used for a variety of workloads.
