A PostgreSQL database add-on that takes security seriously. Starting at ~$0.006/hour.
Borealis Isolated Postgres is different: where other database add-ons expose database servers to harm by accepting connections directly from the whole world, each of our database clusters is isolated within its own virtual private cloud and all connections are required to travel through a secure tunnel. Simply install the add-on’s companion buildpack to automatically establish a secure tunnel for your app without the need for any application code changes.
Get world-class database throughput and latency and a target availability of 99.99%. For maximum protection against data loss, data is fully replicated to six physical copies in three availability zones. And, in the unlikely event of a hardware failure in a multi-node database cluster’s primary node, the cluster will automatically fail over to a replica node for minimal downtime.
Our single tenant plans are priced to be competitive with Heroku Postgres Private and Shield plans without requiring the significant recurring expense of a Heroku Enterprise Agreement.
There’s no need to choose between high availability and query load balancing. Every replica node is available to serve read-only queries and can take over as the read/write primary node in the event of a hardware failure.
Support for in-place plan upgrades makes it easy to scale horizontally by adding replica nodes to an existing database cluster or to scale vertically by switching to servers with more CPUs, RAM and storage without having to wait for long data copy operations.
The available application locations for this add-on are shown below, and depend on whether the application is deployed to a Common Runtime region or Private Space. Learn More
