PostgreSQL is an open source, object-relational database built with a focus on extensibility, data integrity, and speed. Its concurrency support makes it fully ACID-compliant, and it supports dynamic loading and catalog-driven operations to let users customize its data types, functions, and more.
There are two kinds of database cluster plans you can choose from: single node clusters and high availability clusters.
Single node clusters begin at $15.00 per month for a single node cluster with 1 GiB of RAM. Single node clusters are not highly available, but they feature automatic failover. We recommend these clusters for preliminary development and testing.
High availability clusters begin at $30.00 per month for a 2 GiB RAM/1 vCPU primary node with at least one $30.00 per month matching standby node for automatic failover.
You can add or remove standby nodes at any time. Other features, like point-in-time recovery and read-only nodes, vary by database engine. Learn more about feature availability.
Read-only nodes begin at $15.00 per month. Read-only nodes are replicas of a cluster’s primary node located in additional geographical regions.
Traffic to and from Managed Databases does not count against your bandwidth billing transfer allowance.
All managed databases are deployed onto Droplets. You can choose to deploy your managed database on a Droplet with a CPU that is shared with other DigitalOcean users, or deploy it on a machine with a dedicated CPU.
