Following the announcement of updates to the PostgreSQL database by the open source community, AWS has updated Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition to support PostgreSQL 14.4. PostgreSQL 14.4 fixes an issue that could cause silent data corruption when using the CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY or REINDEX CONCURRENTLY commands. Refer to the Aurora version policy to help you to decide how often to upgrade and how to plan your upgrade process. Aurora has also included the fix for this issue in Aurora PostgreSQL 14.3.
You can initiate a minor version upgrade manually by modifying your DB cluster, or you can enable the “Auto minor version upgrade" option when creating or modifying a DB cluster. By doing so, your DB cluster is automatically upgraded after AWS tests and approves the new version. For more details, see Automatic Minor Version Upgrades for PostgreSQL. Please review the Aurora documentation to learn more. For full feature parity list, head to our feature parity page, and to see all the regions that support Amazon Aurora head to our region page.
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.
