Heroku's new, free PostgreSQL 9.1 development database
May 01, 2012 by Matthew Soldo
Today Heroku is launching a new version of our free Postgres database service. This new dev plan offers increased parity between our free database service and our paid, production plans. New features include:
- Postgres 9.1
- Data clips
- Direct database access from psql or other libpq clients.
- Support for most
pgcommands in the Heroku command line client.
- Visibility through the web interface at postgres.heroku.com.
- Support for many databases connected to one application.
This plan is available immediately in public beta and can be provisioned through the Heroku add-ons catalog or command line tool:
$ heroku addons:add heroku-postgresql:dev
