Made for developers

Launch serverless Postgres with a single command

$ psql -h
  • Scalable

    Compute scales dynamically to ensure you're ready for peak hours.

  • Cost efficient

    Compute scales to zero and cold storage offloads to S3 for cost efficiency.

  • Easy to use

    Create a fully managed serverless Postgres instance in seconds.

    Neon is definitely one of the most exciting developments around #Postgres lately. The separation of storage and compute is definitely interesting, would love to see some latency numbers there. Also how "Pageservers" and "Safekeepers" are kept in sync.

    With @Neondatabase , *truly* serverless PostgreSQL is finally here. You can spin up a db and connect to it in less than 3 seconds. This changes the game.

    @foundersfund is so excited to partner with @neondatabase who is launching today #neonlaunch!! They offer modern, cloud-native architecture for #serverless Postgres, separating storage & compute.

    100% Postgres compatibility and the ability to scale down to zero and cold start in less than 3s... sounds extremely cool

    An *open-source* serverless PostgreSQL database is currently being built. The first one to my knowledge. 🥳 The CEO is one of the founders of @SingleStoreDB , so they really know what they do! I have big hopes for this project to succeed.

    Ok, I just tried @neondatabase with @nhost and @HasuraHQ. Things just worked out of the box! Instant GraphQL API on a truly serverless Postgres database. The future is here!

On-demand scalability

We separate storage and compute to make on-demand scalability possible. Compute activates on an incoming connection and scales to zero when not in use.

Compute is fully client-compatible with Postgres because a Neon compute is Postgres.

Neon dynamically adjusts the allocation of compute resources based on workload.

Bottomless storage

We designed our storage from the ground up as a fault tolerant scale-out system built for the cloud. It integrates with cloud object stores such as S3 to offload cold data for cost optimization. Our storage architecture ensures high availability, scale out, and unlimited capacity that we call "bottomless storage".

Neon storage uses the "copy-on-write" technique to deliver database branching, online checkpointing, and point-in-time restore. This eliminates expensive full-data backup and restore operations required with traditional database-as-a-service systems.

Our storage technology is open source and written in Rust.

Database branching

Neon allows you to instantly branch your Postgres database to support modern development workflows. You can create branches for test environments and for every deployment in your CI/CD pipeline.

Branches are created using the "copy on write" technique, making them virtually free.

Not an ordinary Postgres as a service

Neon provides true cloud native features that are essential for modern application development.

  • Reliable

    Neon provides high availability without a maintenance burden or the need for expert advice.

  • Auto-backup

    Incremental auto-backup functionality ensures your data remains safe 24/7.

  • Open source

    Explore our GitHub repository where we publicly develop Neon under the Apache 2.0 license.

Perfect for SaaS

SaaS companies use Neon to maximize engineering velocity and minimize costs. Our serverless architecture reduces compute and storage expenses. Specifically, Neon's autoscaling capabilities prevent over-provisioning and paying for under-utilized instances.
