Crunchy Bridge is a fully managed Postgres service from Crunchy Data. It takes care of running and managing Postgres so that you stay can focused on building your applications, not on keeping your database up and running. Bridge provides highly available Postgres across every major cloud provider — Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure — so regardless of where you're running, you can closely colocate your database.
The Dashboard is the graphical frontend to Crunchy Bridge, giving users an easy way to perform all common operations involved in provisioning and configuring database clusters visually. This is a great place to get started with the product.
cb provides the whole range of database operations as a CLI (command line interface). This is a useful tool for power users looking to perform operations quickly and precisely, and those trying to build simple automations.
The web API is a fully-feature programmatic REST-ful interface to Bridge and is particularly useful for advanced automations. The Crunchy Dashboard is built on the API, so the platform's entire feature set is fully available.
Topics to get started
PgBouncer can be activated on any Bridge database to multiplex connections and help with connection management.
Set up ingress and egress rules for your database to tighten its security stance by preventing unauthorized access.
Configure custom log drains to many common log providers and get improved visibility into database operations.
If you’re looking for support on running and managing Postgres on your own premises, consider taking a look at Crunchy PostgreSQL for Kubernetes.
