Feature considerations and limitations

  • Recommended limit for the maximum database size is 400 GB.
  • Cross-region backup isn't supported. Therefore, you can't back up an Azure PostgreSQL server to a vault in another region. Similarly, you can only restore a backup to a server within the same region as the vault. However, we support cross-subscription backup and restore.
  • Private endpoint-enabled Azure PostgreSQL servers can be backed up by allowing trusted Microsoft services in the network settings.
  • Only the data is recovered during restore; roles aren't restored.
  • Protection of PostgreSQL Flexible server is currently not supported.
