PostgreSQL Overview

What is PostgreSQL?

PostgreSQL is the most advanced open source relational database on the market and has been in active developement for 30 years. With a strong reputation for reliability, performance, and robust features, it continues to out perform modern NoSQL document oriented databases. Whether you need a reliable ACID compliant datastore for e-commerce and web services, or want robust analytics processing for business intelligence, PostgreSQL offers the flexibility, robustness, and track record to bet your business on.

What’s included in an ObjectRocket for PostgreSQL instance?

Each CockroachDB instance includes:

  • Single node PostgreSQL 11/12 instances
  • Security via Access Control Lists (ACLs) / IP Whitelists and user authentication
  • User Management via Mission Control
  • Daily backups with 2 week retention


While we’re in beta, all instances are subject to our Test Terms and we will provide best effort support via our ObjectRocket support team. We do not recommend running production workloads on our platform while we’re in Beta.
