One-click upgrade your PostgreSQL to version 9.5 and 9.6 now available!

Scalingo provides up-to-date database addons with straightforward upgrade. We just turned on the ability to upgrade your PostgreSQL databases to versions 9.5 and 9.6. In the process, we also updated the “Advanced” tab of the Dashboard with the ability to administrate PostgreSQL extensions. Let’s go for a tour on the wonderful world of PostgreSQL 9.5 and 9.6.

One more step in the Docker Ecosystem with our new Docker addon

It is not a secret that since day one, Docker has been an important piece of our infrastructure. Our ambition is to go towards more integration in the Docker ecosystem. As a first step in that direction, today we are releasing a new add-on: the Docker image add-on. You will now be able to download the Docker images Scalingo has built for you and use it in different scenarios that we detail in this article.

New Database Dashboard with insight into statistics

The Database Dashboard was the last legacy interface left to be upgraded. It was part of the old Scalingo Dashboard, now it finally receives the love it deserved with a revamped design and features including database statistics! Adding new features along the way, we made sure it has the same design language than other Scalingo websites. Every feature you were using is available with a better interface.

PostgreSQL 9.4 is now available and our Future Plan for database versioning

Since the begining of Scalingo, we’ve developped 5 data store addons “in house” for MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Redis and Elasticsearch. Since the beginning our PG addon was based on version 9.3. And since the beginning we have a great plan to handle database versioning correctly. Initially we wanted to have versioning enabled and then released an updated PG addon with a nice way for our users to easily change the version of their database addon (with just a click). However, since this great plan takes a little bit more time to be completed, we took the decision to release an updated PG addon with version 9.4 without waiting for a better database versioning to be released.
