Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL Jump to Story

Considering how many Ruby developers prefer PostgreSQL over MySQL and even NoSQL solutions, it’s a pretty big deal that Amazon announced last week that it now supports PostgreSQL on its Amazon RDS service. As usual with RDS they tout ease of scaling, availability and performance. It looks like Amazon competes with Heroku Postgres on Premium and Enterprise offerings in terms of pricing. They also offer some of the most interesting PSQL extensions like full-text search, multi-language support, PostGIS, HStore and JSON data types.
