The best way to deploy, manage, and grow Postgres on Azure
Crunchy Bridge is a turnkey solution for deploying PostgreSQL on Azure with the tools you need backed by a reputable team for peace of mind. You can manage your PostgreSQL services in the Bridge platform or use our developer API. Crunchy Bridge is a full service database-as-a-service with features to provision, manage, configure HA, create point-in-time recovery backups in minutes, or create replicas. With Bridge you will have all the benefits of a Postgres focused team with the security and reliability of your other Azure resources.
Backups are free and included with every instance. Disaster recovery is automatically enabled for all databases, ensuring that your database can be recovered in the event of a failure or disaster. Crunchy Bridge is also equipped with optional high availability that automatically deploys a streaming replica in a different availability zone. Failover is automated and efficient with minimal service interruption.
No need to dump/restore your database or spend weeks planning how to get to the latest Postgres version. Crunchy Bridge provides a seamless process for upgrading across major Postgres versions. You don't have to weigh application downtime vs. developer effort for an upgrade now - you get the latest Postgres when you want it without pain.
Connection pooling built-in
Connection pooling is a good practice for any production application. Crunchy Bridge removes the complexity of connection management by giving you pgBouncer, the best in class Postgres connection pooler, right alongside your database. If you're not using pgBouncer today, chances are it'd be a win for performance for your application. Read more on why you should have it in place on our blog.
