Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition now supports PostgreSQL major version 14 in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. PostgreSQL 14 includes performance improvements for parallel queries, heavily-concurrent workloads, partitioned tables, logical replication, and vacuuming. PostgreSQL 14 also improves functionality with new capabilities. For example, you can cancel long-running queries if a client disconnects and you can close idle sessions if they time out. Range types now support multiranges, allowing representation of noncontiguous data ranges, and stored procedures can now return data via OUT parameters.

To use the new version, create a new Aurora PostgreSQL database instance with just a few clicks in the Amazon RDS Management Console. You can also upgrade existing database instances. Please review the Aurora documentation to learn more about upgrading.

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, visit the getting started page or to learn more about Aurora PostgreSQL 14, read the release notes.
