Access Your Postgres Database

You may only access your Postgres Instance from services running in the same environment. Learn more about how to connect to your Postgres Database under the Access Tab.


In the near future you will be able to Tunnel from your machine to your service for easy access. Additionally, a feature to run commands directly to your database via a Shell terminal will be available as well.

Postgres Advanced Options


Enabling replication turns on a separate endpoint for Postgres readonly instances. You can enable replication under the Configurations tab when Creating a Postgres service. You may not enable this after the service has been created. It's recommended to enable Replication in Production environments or any environments you wish to decrease the chances of downtime. Read more about read replicas here.

Cost Optimization

Enabling Cost Optimization is not recommended for production environments. Cost optimization places your instances on Spot or Pre-emptible cloud instances which can incur random downtime. For best effort uptime, you must disable cost optimization.

(Storage) Persistence

Postgres SQL has an optional (Storage) Persistence and Volume Size options available under the Advanced Options Tab.
