Today, we’re excited to announce a major update to Heroku Postgres with a new lineup of production plans. These plans are the first component of Heroku Postgres PGX, the next generation of our managed Postgres solution.

PGX Plans introduce larger database sizes, more generous resource allocations, and a broader set of options to suit your needs and to help your applications scale more smoothly. PGX Plans are generally available as of today, and all new Postgres databases will be created on our latest generation of Postgres infrastructure. Underneath the hood, we've upgraded the CPU, memory, storage, and networking aspects to ensure your Postgres database is running smoothly at scale....

Today, we're happy to announce full support for PostgreSQL 10, opening our managed Postgres solution to the full slate of features released after a successful two-month Beta period. PostgreSQL 10 is now the default version for all new provisioned Heroku Postgres databases. All Postgres extensions, tooling, and integration with the Heroku developer experience are ready to use, giving you the power of PostgreSQL 10 with the ease and usability of Heroku for building data-centric applications.

We'd like to re-emphasize a few features - among the many released in Postgres 10 - that we are particularly excited about.

Today we are pleased to announce a significant update to Heroku Connect, one that is a culmination of two years of work to improve every aspect of the service. We’ve focused on three primary areas: improving write speed, geographically expanding the service, and intelligently guiding design and troubleshooting workflows.

Earlier this month, PostgreSQL 10.0 was released. Today, we are excited to announce PostgreSQL 10 is available in beta on Heroku, bringing a number of notable feature and performance improvements to our managed PostgreSQL database service.

The beta provides customers who want to try out the new release an easy way to do so, while customers who are happy with the current version can continue to stay on version 9.6 until we make version 10 generally available. Also, new databases will continue to default to version 9.6 until we release version 10 to GA.

At the core of Heroku’s data services sits Postgres, and today, we are making it even easier to bend Heroku Postgres to the very unique needs of your application’s stack. With these new features, you can easily customize Postgres, making it more powerful and configurable, while retaining all the automation and management capabilities of Heroku Postgres you know and love. By changing Postgres settings, creating and working with database credentials, and providing tight integrations to Heroku and Heroku CI, you now have the ability to further tune your Postgres database to your team’s needs.
