PostgreSQL (container)

standalone PostgreSQL container

PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system that uses and extends the SQL language combined with many features that safely store and scale the most complicated data workloads.

PostgreSQL has earned a strong reputation for its proven architecture, reliability, data integrity, robust feature set, extensibility, and the dedication of the open source community behind the software to consistently deliver performant and innovative solutions.

This is a standalone Docker-style container providing PostgreSQL on a minimalist Debian base. Currently it is only available to run on AWS ECS via the AWS Marketplace by following this link:
