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.

Scalable

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.

Pricing

Our dedicated team of customer data engineers will help you create, install, patch, monitor and troubleshoot Cloud Databases.

Storage Price: $0.88/GB/monthA$1.10/GB/month£0.54/GB/month€0.74/GB/month
CPU Weight: Higher is better, with the instance receiving more time on the CPU on the basis of its weight under high load.
Network: Allocated network throughput.
TPS (Transactions per second): Benchmark (June 2014) in transactions per second using 64 MySQL threads for all flavors, except 32 threads for 512MB.

*Your mileage may vary. A benchmark is only a guideline and not representative of the performance your application will see. Always benchmark your own application.
