Export from PostgreSQL to PostgreSQL

CloudQuery is an open-source data integration platform that allows you to export data from any source to any destination.

The CloudQuery PostgreSQL plugin allows you to sync data from PostgreSQL to any destination, including PostgreSQL. It's free, open source, requires no account, and takes only minutes to get started.
