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 is a smart addition for any production database. Crunchy Bridge provides pgBouncer, the best in class Postgres connection pooler, right alongside your database and removes the complexity of connection management with external sources. Read more on why you should use connection pooling on our blog.
Crunchy Bridge was developed and is supported by the industry's leading PostgreSQL experts. We have many Postgres core team members on the Crunchy team embedded into the open source community. Our focus is only on Postgres and that means that your services are optimized and our platform support is focused specifically on your database.
Crunchy Bridge was created for a better developer experience. You get full access to your Postgres database with real Postgres Superuser access. We also offer a full set of extensions and language support for the modern developer including Pl/Python (with SciPy, NumPy, and Pandas), Pl/R, and full logical replication support including wal2json and pgoutput to enable change data capture (CDC) via tools like Debezium.
