What is Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL?

Amazon RDS manages complex and time-consuming administrative tasks such as PostgreSQL software installation and upgrades, storage management, replication for high availability and back-ups for disaster recovery. With just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, you can deploy a PostgreSQL database with automatically configured database parameters for optimal performance. Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL database instances can be provisioned with either standard storage or Provisioned IOPS storage. Once provisioned, you can scale from 10GB to 3TB of storage and from 1,000 IOPS to 30,000 IOPS.

What is ElephantSQL?

ElephantSQL hosts PostgreSQL on Amazon EC2 in multiple regions and availability zones. The servers are continuously transferring the Write-Ahead-Log (the transaction log) to S3 for maximum reliability.
