Cloud-based databases enable users to store, manage and retrieve their structured, unstructured and semi-structured data via a cloud platform, accessible over the Internet. Cloud databases are also known as database as a service (DBaaS), since they are often offered as a managed service.
Why use cloud databases?
How Can Rackspace Technology Help?
We provide companies like yours with a number of cloud-based database services. Not only do we provide fully managed 24x7x365 monitoring and access to always-available database specialists, but we optimize every infrastructure component of your cloud-based database, starting with its network and ending with configuring the database for optimal performance.
Are Cloud Databases the Right Fit?
Like any technology, cloud-based databases pose potential problems. Privacy and security are always possible issues. Likewise, a company might lose some of its data or its ability to access it in the event of a disaster if the service provider has not recently backed it up or doesn’t back it up to multiple, geographically dispersed locations.
Rackspace regularly backups all cloud databases and uses redundant storage to ensure your business data is protected and, in the case of a major disaster, quickly replicable.
Among our database offerings are:
We support MySQL 5.6, Percona 5.6 and MariaDB 10, each of which can be easily provisioned, deployed and accessed via our control panel, API or command line instructions. This DBaaS is available with standard instance pricing and, in US and UK data centers, high availability instance pricing.
