Cloud Computing

Any workload, any platform

PostgreSQL is an open-source database system with a huge range of possible applications. Built on reviewed, high-quality code, it provides an extremely stable system for any use case, from straightforward web apps to demanding production environments.

PostgreSQL can be used as the basis for classic relational SQL databases with transactional and static pages, as well as a NoSQL solution for storing JSON elements and geometry data.

PostgreSQL server system with applications

Customize your CPU, RAM and storage

Get database resources that can be completely tailored to your needs. With IONOS Cloud, you can adapt components like CPU, RAM and storage capacity to meet your needs at any time. Choose flexible vertical scaling according to your requirements, or go with ready-made presets (best practices) for different scenarios.

No matter how complex the data type or how large the data volume, PostgreSQL provides maximum compatibility for every use case. This means that every kind of transaction has the necessary security.

Flexible scaling of PostgreSQL components

PostgreSQL and IONOS Cloud

99.95% SLA uptime

We host your PostgreSQL databases in our ISO 27001 data centers with 99.95% availability (SLA uptime). In the case of an outage, our secondary systems keep your databases working.

Fully customizable

Build your databases exactly to your needs. IONOS Cloud gives you full flexibility to configure them with RAM, CPU and storage as required.

Flexible uses

Designed for complex SQL-structured data, PostgreSQL can also be used to handle JSON document storage or geometry data. PostgreSQL is object-relational and expands with storage capacity.

No vendor lock-in

PostgreSQL is open source, so you're not dependent on a single provider or bound to any proprietary code or technology.

Better cost optimization

With no contract and no license fees, PostgreSQL offers the expertise of 30 years' development while keeping your project's costs down.

Secure and compliant

We run ISO 27001-certified data centers in close proximity to the peering points at primary network nodes. Not only does this mean maximium security, but also full compliance with the EU's GDPR.
