Fully Managed

With 24x7x365 monitoring and database specialists available to you anytime, you spend less time managing infrastructure and more time focusing on your application.

Performance Optimized

From the network to the storage system and database configuration, we optimize every infrastructure component to provide peak database performance.

Simple to Use

Easily provision, scale and access your databases using our control panel, API or CLI. Deploy in minutes and free yourself from time-consuming and costly management tasks.


Built for Reliability

Redundant storage, power and networking help protect you from hardware failures. A dedicated storage cluster with synchronous data replication keeps your data available across multiple storage clusters and helps to protect against data loss.

High Performance

Container-based virtualization delivers near bare-metal performance, and high-speed networking provides low-latency communication between your database and other Cloud Servers.


Cloud Databases lets you painlessly add or remove replicas, move between instance sizes up to 64GB of RAM and scale storage up to 1TB (or even higher on request).

Reduced Complexity

Even complex features like replication, high availability, monitoring and backups are simplified and easy to enable via our Control Panel, API or CLI.
