The PostgreSQL community released PostgreSQL 14 RC 1 on September 23, 2021. PostgreSQL 14 includes improved functionality and performance such as larger connection counts, faster and smaller compression of large columns, support for timeout of idle sessions, and finer groupings of time-based data.
The Amazon RDS Database Preview Environment supports both Single-AZ and Multi-AZ deployments on the latest generation of instance classes, and can be encrypted at rest using AWS Key Management Service (KMS) keys. Amazon RDS Database Preview Environment database instances are retained for a maximum period of 60 days and are automatically deleted after the retention period. Amazon RDS database snapshots that are created in the preview environment can only be used to create or restore database instances within the preview environment. You can use standard PostgreSQL dump and load functionality to import or export your databases from the preview environment.
Amazon RDS Database Preview Environment database instances are priced the same as production RDS instances created in the US East (Ohio) Region. The Amazon RDS Database Preview Environment Forum is available for you and the Amazon RDS team to share information and concerns about both the candidate versions of PostgreSQL 14 and the Amazon RDS Database Preview Environment.
