Costs with Typical Managed PostgreSQL

Don’t waste spend on under-utilized idle capacity

Many companies are waste the majority of their database spend, in environments ranging from their scaled production databases down to their numerous developer and test databases.

The problem:

The issue of under-utilized, idle capacity stems from traditional managed PostgreSQL services forcing companies to over-provision for fear of spikes and consequently paying more. Even then, they are often not over-provisioning enough to handle the worst of the spikes.

Check out the table below to see examples of common scenarios with typical managed PostgreSQL services and their associated costs.
