Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition now supports PostgreSQL major version 14 (14.3). PostgreSQL 14 includes performance improvements for parallel queries, heavily-concurrent workloads, partitioned tables, logical replication, and vacuuming. PostgreSQL 14 also improves functionality with new capabilities. For example, you can cancel long-running queries if a client disconnects and you can close idle sessions if they time out. Range types now support multiranges, allowing representation of non-contiguous data ranges, and stored procedures can now return data via OUT parameters. This release includes new features for Babelfish for Aurora PostgreSQL version 2.1. Please refer to Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL updates for more information.

To use the new version, create a new Aurora PostgreSQL-compatible database instance with just a few clicks in the Amazon RDS Management Console. You can also upgrade existing database instances. Please review the Aurora documentation to learn more about upgrading. PostgreSQL 14 is available in all regions supported by Aurora PostgreSQL. Refer to the Aurora version policy to help you to decide how often to upgrade and how to plan your upgrade process.

Amazon Aurora is designed for unparalleled high performance and availability at global scale with full MySQL and PostgreSQL compatibility. It provides built-in security, continuous backups, serverless compute, up to 15 read replicas, automated multi-Region replication, and integrations with other AWS services.
