Best Hosting for Your PostgreSQL Application

Do you like Postgresql for building applications? If so, you might have already learned how to install and configure it on your local environment to test things out. Next, you’ll need Postgresql friendly hosting. If you’re just starting out, free hosting probably sounds pretty good. When your site or app needs grow, however, free plans probably won’t cut it. We’ve put together a list of the best Postgresql hosting providers to help you make the right choice. Below, you’ll find a brief review of each service, plus the pros and cons.

Database Labs

Database Labs was born in 2014, when founders Paul Legato and Eric Bravick began to build the database as a service platform they’d always wanted. They’d found that everyone was spending entirely too much time wrangling databases rather than working on the core problems facing the company: restoring backups at 3 AM, spending days setting up automatic failover, applying urgent security patches. “There has to be a better way,” they thought. Yet existing Postgres as a service solutions were insanely expensive or lacking critical features — or both.
