Announcing BigAnimal: Fully managed PostgreSQL in the Cloud

Cloud PostgreSQL

:Cloud Native PostgreSQL

Cloud Native Postgres adds agility to Postgres from a deployment and an auto-healing perspective, making Postgres the ultimate data store for microservices and more.

Cloud Native PostgreSQL

Built with cloud-native principles in mind

Relying exclusively on the Kubernetes API, Cloud Native PostgreSQL allows you to manage deployment, high availability, and automated failover from Kubernetes.

The EDB operator performs all of the database lifecycle tasks previously handled by an operational DBA.

Deploy anywhere

Lightweight, immutable Postgres containers

Automate DBA tasks

Failover, switchover, backup, recovery, and rolling updates

Avoid lock-in

Operator and images are portable to any cloud


Overcome containerization and Kubernetes challenges with our Postgres and Kubernetes experts
