Just months after Catalyst Cloud launched their Managed Database Service
in Tech Preview, the local cloud computing innovator is excited to announce that the service now supports the highly
popular PostgreSQL database engine, along with reaching the Beta stage. Combined with existing support for MySQL, the Managed Database Service
now covers the two most popular engines for cloud-based systems.
PostgreSQL is a popular target for migration from legacy Enterprise database engines, with high standards compliance and
capabilities that match legacy engines but without the high license costs.
Catalyst Cloud’s Chief Technology Officer, David Zanetti, said “This is a really important step to help kiwi businesses
keep their data safely in New Zealand and under New Zealand laws, and to escape the high price of their legacy database
Catalyst Cloud has extensive experience in running PostgreSQL, and the service reflects battle-tested best practices in
operating the engine. “The Catalyst Cloud team has the depth of experience in running PostgreSQL that other providers
just don’t have. We’ve wrapped that expertise in an easy to access and run service,” said David Zanetti.
As with other Catalyst Cloud services, database engines are provided on pay-as-you-go pricing, with the flexibility to
run a database for only the time you need it. This is valuable for tasks such as Disaster Recovery testing, maintaining
test versions of applications that may not be used full time, and many other situations.
