PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system. Databases are hosted on shared servers unless otherwise agreed due to specific additional requirements.
It provides multi-user databases suitable for light- to medium-use.
Email the Library & IT Help Desk, giving a suggested name for your new database and a short summary of its purpose.
Requests for a new PostgreSQL database will take five business days to complete.
You can receive status updates about the service by joining the PostgreSQL Google Group.

General IT Services targets:
This service runs on our high-availability virtual machine platform; in the event of a major incident it will automatically failover between data centres, with only a brief outage. Filestores are replicated between data centres and should also fail over automatically.
A backup is taken of all databases once a day for Disaster Recovery purposes, enabling them to be restored to the last nightly backup if the database were to become corrupted, or if a catastrophic event occurred to the file servers and/or data centres.
Our service standards have been produced in consultation with our customers, and monitor the quality, timeliness and access to facilities and services:
