Amazon Aurora is a fully managed relational database that combines the performance and availability of commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. In April 2017, we announced an open preview of the PostgreSQL-compatible edition of Amazon Aurora. The service is now generally available to all customers.
Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility provides up to three times better performance than the typical PostgreSQL database, together with scalability, durability and security. It also provides a high degree of compatibility with commercial databases, making it a compelling target for database migrations.
The PostgreSQL-compatible edition of Amazon Aurora is available on r4.large – r4.16xlarge DB Instance Classes in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon) and EU (Ireland) Regions.
