The data we store holds value, but refining data into meaning remains a difficult task. Over the last few months, we've taken a step back to figure out what we can do to help our users cross that divide, and rebuilt Heroku Dataclips from scratch with that goal in mind.

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....
