What we like
Instant setup with easy schema-definition and predefined or custom field types - full access to all Postgres types. CSV import & export. Spreadsheet-like UI for searching, filtering, editing rows. Get a connection string for remote access. Query via SQL from within a Retool app. Redundancy & backup handled for you.
What we don't like
Designed for small use cases that don’t require high availability or scalability e.g. internal tools where it’s not a good use of time to manage your own database. Initial quota matches this - 5GB storage (can be increased on request).
