Following the announcement of updates to the PostgreSQL database, we have updated Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility to support PostgreSQL version 13.6, 12.10, 11.15, and 10.20 in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. This release contains bug fixes and improvements done by the PostgreSQL community. As a reminder, Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL 10 will reach end of life on January 31, 2023.

In addition, Babelfish for Aurora PostgreSQL version 1.2.0 has been released for PostgreSQL 13.6, providing improvements in support for GRANT, REVOKE, ROWVERSION, JSON_QUERY and more. Details are listed in the Babelfish 1.2.0 release notes.

You can initiate a minor version upgrade manually by modifying your DB cluster. Or you can enable the “Auto minor version upgrade” option when creating or modifying a DB cluster. Doing so means that your DB cluster is automatically upgraded after Aurora PostgreSQL tests and approves the new version. For more details, see Automatic Minor Version Upgrades for PostgreSQL. Please review the Aurora documentation to learn more.

Amazon Aurora combines the performance and availability of traditional enterprise databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. To get started with Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL, take a look at our getting started page.

Babelfish for Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL lets customers accelerate migrations from SQL Server to Amazon Aurora by allowing Amazon Aurora to understand the SQL Server dialect. To get started with Babelfish, visit the Amazon Web Services Babelfish documentation page.
