Standalone Heroku Postgres’ Unanswered Question

While the offer is clear and valuable in itself:

  • 99.99% uptime
  • 99.999999999% (eleven nines) durability
  • read-only asynchronous replicas
  • database cloning

I’ve been reading all posts about the announcement looking for the answer to the most obvious question: why would you use Heroku’s Postgres service from outside the Heroku platform?

As far as I can tell:

  • the network latency will be significant
  • network partitions will occur (more often than having both you application and data in the same DC)
  • transfer costs will be significant

So what is the answer?
