Why RDS for PostgreSQL?
Leverage the world's most advanced open source database to power geospatial, financial, or analytics applications securely and reliably.
- Read Replica
Up to five read replicas can be added to an existing DB instance to offload read-heavy database workloads.
- Logical Replication Subscription
All logical slots can be replicated from the primary instance to the standby instance.
- Scheduled Tasks
Tasks can be run automatically during off-peak hours based on a schedule that you control.
Multilayer Network Security
- Network Isolation and Security Group
Leverage Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to isolate tenant networks and security group rules to control traffic to and from specific IP addresses and ports, keeping your database safe.
Use TLS and SSL to encrypt data during transmission, ensuring the security and integrity of your data.
Use Cloud Trace Service (CTS) to record operations associated with RDS for PostgreSQL for later query, audit, and backtrack operations.
RDS for PostgreSQL has 15+ security certifications such as ISO 27001, CSA, Trusted Cloud Service (TRUCS), and CCSP Level 3.
