Solid pricing, fast and attentive customer service and backed up with a nice and intuitive online management UI and detailed monitoring/performance reporting.

With about 10 or 15 minutes setup, I had a fully functional PostgreSQL 12.x server up and running, with 300GB capacity, no hidden traffic fees, and total costs just a couple of hundred dollars a month.

I couldn't imagine having to do this manually. It has saved us countless hours of work and it will continue to do so in the future. Managing our clusters day to day is so easy, I really can't believe it.
