Announcing PG Nitrous – a faster PostgreSQL cloud

Posted in News, PostgreSQL, Product

We are thrilled to announce the release of PG Nitrous, a new PostgreSQL cloud database for people who want fast SQL query performance. 

With 30x faster SQL query performance than Amazon RDS, and more flexible pricing than the Amazon Redshift cloud data warehouse, PG Nitrous is perfect for businesses looking for an easier and more scalable way to handle SQL queries on terabytes of data at a compelling price. 

What is possible with PG Nitrous? 

  • PG Nitrous is PostgreSQL, hosted on AWS EC2, and accelerated by the Swarm64 DA extension.  
  • Within minutes, you can launch, load, and query 10x to 60x faster. 
  • Benefit from the query acceleration features of the Swarm64 DA 5.0 extension – greater parallelism, columnstore indexing, faster JOINs, and more.  
  • Retain all the benefits of PostgreSQL 12. Full ACID compliance, no scripting, or SQL changes. 
  • Add your favorite tools or extensions from the vibrant PostgreSQL community.
  • Keep full admin control of your database, and backed by PostgreSQL performance experts at Swarm64.
