About Neon 

PostgreSQL is the world’s most advanced open source relational database, loved by users and developers.

Neon is a serverless implementation of PostgreSQL. It is an auto-scaling, on-demand database as a service for modern applications. Neon's key innovation is the separation of storage and compute, which simplifies provisioning and managing database capacity, and enables key features like horizontal scaling and branching that are otherwise hard to achieve. The architecture is similar to that pioneered by Amazon Aurora.

Neon was created by a team of Postgres hackers, and led by CEO Nikita Shamgunov (co-founder of SingleStore). Neon is built on open-source principles and is focused on giving back to the Postgres and developer communities.
