AlloyDB for PostgreSQL
A fully managed PostgreSQL-compatible database service for your most demanding enterprise workloads. AlloyDB combines the best of Google with PostgreSQL, for superior performance, scale, and availability.
Superior performance, scale, and availability
Scale up and achieve predictable performance and a high availability SLA of 99.99%, inclusive of maintenance, for your most demanding enterprise workloads.
Simplified, ML-enabled management
Automated and machine learning-enabled autopilot systems simplify management by handling database patching, backups, scaling, and replication for you.
Transparent and predictable pricing
Eliminate dependency on high-cost, proprietary databases, and take advantage of transparent and predictable pricing with no proprietary licensing or opaque I/O charges.
"Institutional investors require 100% accuracy for complete transparency and auditability, but blockchains are data-intensive, with our system holding over 2 billion records. We migrated our database from Amazon Aurora to AlloyDB on Google Cloud and it's delivering beyond our highest expectations, with 3x faster performance and 60% lower cost for a similar instance size."

For internet-scale applications
|Built-in generative AI||AlloyDB AI offers high-performance, pgvector-compatible search that runs vector queries up to 10x faster compared to standard PostgreSQL. It helps you generate vector embeddings from within your database, access data stored in open-source gen AI tools, such as LangChain, and access your AI models, whether they're local models in AlloyDB or remote models in Vertex AI.|
|Intelligent database management||AlloyDB uses adaptive algorithms and ML for PostgreSQL vacuum management, storage and memory management, data tiering, and analytics acceleration. An Index Advisor monitors queries and recommends indexes that can be added to increase performance, and it helps improve query performance by up to 4x, based on our performance tests.|
|Cross-region replication||Create secondary clusters in different regions for disaster recovery, have them continuously replicated from the primary region, and promote them in case of an outage. Secondary clusters also improve read performance by bringing data closer to your users. AlloyDB's regional replicas deliver more than 25x lower replication lag than standard PostgreSQL for high throughput transactional workloads.|
|Continuous backup and recovery||Protect your business from data loss with point-in-time recovery to any point within your defined retention window. Restore the database to a specific date and time for development, test and auditing purposes, or recover your production database from user or application errors. You no longer need expensive hardware or software solutions to achieve enterprise-level data protection.|
|Easy migrations||No matter where your database is located—whether on-premises, on Compute Engine, or in other clouds—Database Migration Service (DMS) can migrate it to AlloyDB securely and with minimal downtime. DMS leverages native PostgreSQL replication capabilities and automated schema and code conversion, as necessary, to maximize the reliability of your migration.|
