Amazon Aurora is a fully managed relational database that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. In November 2016, we announced a limited preview of the PostgreSQL-compatible version. Since then, we’ve received valuable feedback from early adopters.

We’re now opening the preview to all AWS customers. Sign up to see how Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility provides up to several times better performance than the typical PostgreSQL database, together with the scalability, durability and security capabilities of Amazon Aurora. The preview also includes Amazon RDS Performance Insights, our new, easy-to-use database monitoring feature that helps you detect database performance problems and take corrective action.
