Crunchy Data Continues PostgreSQL Support with the Release of Crunchy Bridge

Crunchy Data, a provider of trusted open source PostgreSQL, is releasing Crunchy Bridge, a fully managed cloud Postgres service available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

According to the vendor, Crunchy Bridge was developed to fill the need of a more sophisticated, fully-managed, database service and focuses on bringing the power of Postgres, an advanced open source database, to all developers.

Crunchy Bridge differs from other cloud database services by going beyond the basics and providing at its core, a trusted database with high availability, automatic backups, point-in-time recovery, encryption in transit and at rest, and is configured to be production-ready.

Users can select a cloud provider of their choice and can choose to replicate across clouds, making migrations as simple as a click of a button.

“When it comes to your data - trust and reliability are important factors. With Crunchy Bridge you have a full team of Postgres experts behind you,” said SVP of Bridge Craig Kerstiens. “From engineers that author and contribute to key Postgres tools like PostGIS, pgBackRest, pgMonitor, and pg_partman as well as core Postgres itself, you know that if you need support you'll be able to get it with Crunchy Data.”

Crunchy Bridge allows for more advanced learning on the database with language support of PL/pgSQL,  PL/Python, and PL/R.

In addition, Postgres extensions allow the database to add new data types, new functions, and new functionality without waiting on a release of the Postgres core.

Crunchy Bridge expands Crunchy Data’s repertoire of Postgres offerings to now provide flexibility in the cloud with its portable managed service, the ability to manage internal cloud-native infrastructure with the Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes , and ease of setup and management of on-premise, VM based deployments with Crunchy High Availability PostgreSQL.

This new offering gives enterprises the ultimate choice in Postgres management and provides the ability to modernize infrastructure as needed.

Crunchy Bridge also provides peace of mind with the full team of Crunchy Data Postgres experts available for 24/7 support.
