The best managed PostgreSQL solution I've tried

I have always wanted a solution like Aiven; easy-to-use like Heroku, but with far more powerful features and far more affordable.

Pros

- latest version of PostgreSQL available nearly immediately - great performance - easy-to-understand UI with enough power to do everything I needed - straightforward solution, not excessively complicated - ability to deploy into cloud provider of my choice, no lock-in - clear pricing - excellent support

Cons

- not possible to leverage free credits from cloud providers

Works for us

We use this product to back our application for all environments. It is a huge improvement over our previous provider who was less expensive, but not nearly as stable or user friendly.

Pros

The ease of deployment and the dashboard are super important to us and these guys seem to have put a lot of thought into building a toolset that works for devs.

Cons

I don't have anything useful to add here.

Reasons for Choosing Aiven PostgreSQL

Price and ease of use.

Reasons for Switching to Aiven PostgreSQL

We were experiencing slow downs and instability on the previous postgres service.

Bradley uses Aiven

It's okay, it doesn't fail which is great, but lacking in tools.

Pros

Console is easy to navigate. I didn't need a single tutorial to figure out what was where.

Cons

Monitoring, Performance measuring, and optimization tools are pretty non-existent

Reasons for Choosing Aiven PostgreSQL

I didn't choose, inherited from a prior decision.
