PostgreSQL versions

Crunchy Bridge maintains support for several versions of PostgreSQL at any given time. As the PostgreSQL Global Development Group sunsets an older version, Crunchy Bridge also removes support for that version well in advance, and we'll notify you so you can prepare to upgrade. We also provide tools and support so you can upgrade your cluster to a newer version.

Postgres versions on Crunchy Bridge

Crunchy Bridge currently supports PostgreSQL versions 12, 13, 14 and 15. However, note that hobby-0 and -1 clusters can only be provisioned with Postgres 15.

Each Postgres major version will be supported on Crunchy Bridge until one year before the PostgreSQL Global Development Group sunsets their support. Approximately six months prior, we will remove the ability to provision new Crunchy Bridge clusters running that major version. We'll also notify you if your clusters are running a version that's being phased out and offer guidance to help you upgrade.

To ensure the security and operability of a cluster, we can't allow clusters to continue running on versions of Postgres that are not supported by the community / PostgreSQL Global Development Group. If a cluster is still running a Postgres version when community support ends, it will be automatically upgraded it to a newer version.

Minor version upgrades

The community releases minor versions at least four times a year, and sometimes more often. Crunchy Bridge clusters are automatically updated with new minor versions automatically in the course of other operations, such as plan or storage changes, failovers, and other maintenance.
