ElephantSQL automates every part of setup and running of PostgreSQL clusters. Available on all major cloud and application platforms all over the world. Let your team focus on what they do best - building your product. Leave server management and monitoring to the experts.
ElephantSQL is hosted by PostgreSQL experts, with several years of DBA PostgreSQL experience. We provide 24/7 support to thousands of customers.
Automated backups are performed every day, which is stored in a cloud file storage so that they are always accessible to you. You can also use point-in-time-recovery to restore your database.
ElephantSQL installs and manages PostgreSQL databases for you. ElephantSQL offers databases ranging from shared servers for smaller projects and proof of concepts, up to enterprise-grade multi-server setups.
In the face of hardware or software failure of the master node, ElephantSQL will make an automatic failover to the follower on all HA (high availability) plans. The follower can be located in another region or even at a different cloud provider.
We are proud to be the first SaaS option for PostgreSQL that have support for streaming replication across clouds. Our clustering options, fork, point-in-time recovery, and followers, allow the databases to be in different regions or even at different cloud providers.
Invite your co-workers and you’ll all have separate ElephantSQL accounts, but manage the same set of instances. You decide where to send notifications and who will pay the bill.
Our control panel offers various tools for monitoring; you can view server metrics to measure performance and view slow queries. You also have the choice to ship your PostgreSQL logs to Papertrail, Splunk, Loggly, CloudWatch, StackDriver and Logentries.
ElephantSQL provides a browser tool for SQL queries where you can create, read, update and delete data directly from your web browser.
Security is something we prioritize above anything else. A well built environment start with high coding standards that guard against attempted security breaches. Our system components undergo tests and source code reviews to assess the security before we are adding our code into production.
