Amazon Aurora Serverless v1 now supports PostgreSQL major version 11. PostgreSQL 11 includes improvements to partitioning, parallelism, and performance enhancements such as faster column additions with a non-null default.

Aurora Serverless v1 also supports in-place upgrade from PostgreSQL 10 to 11. Instead of backing up and restoring the database to the new version, you can upgrade with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console or using the latest AWS SDK or CLI. No new cluster is created in the process which means you keep the same endpoints and other characteristics of the cluster. The upgrade completes in minutes and can be applied immediately or during the maintenance window. Your database cluster will be unavailable during the upgrade. Review the Aurora documentation to learn more.

Aurora Serverless v1 is an on-demand, auto-scaling configuration for Amazon Aurora (MySQL-compatible and PostgreSQL-compatible editions). Read about Aurora Serverless v1 on the product page, and in the Aurora documentation.
