Amazon Aurora combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility is now available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region, so you can host sensitive Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and all types of regulated workloads and export-controlled data.

With the launch of the PostgreSQL-compatible edition in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region, customers with sensitive data and regulatory compliance requirements have a new option for relational database placement, availability, and scalability. You can launch an Aurora instance with just a few clicks in the RDS Management Console. For more information, please visit the Aurora product page.

Amazon Aurora provides up to three times better performance than the typical PostgreSQL database, together with increased scalability, durability, and security. With this launch, the PostgreSQL- and MySQL-compatible editions achieve full parity in availability across AWS Regions; see the AWS Region Table for a complete list.
