Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for PostgreSQL now supports the seg extension which provides the "seg" data type for representing line segments or floating point intervals.

PostgreSQL extensions are libraries that supply extra functions, operators, or data types to the core database engine. The seg extension provides a data type with operators that allow for storing and querying of line segments or intervals with arbitrary variable precision. This is useful for applications needing to represent laboratory measurements. Please see the list of supported extensions in the Amazon RDS User Guide for specific versions.

Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL makes it simple to set up, operate, and scale PostgreSQL deployments in the cloud. See Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL Pricing for pricing details and regional availability. Create or update a fully managed Amazon RDS database in the Amazon RDS Management Console.
