Question

Managed MySQL database sizes

Hi, Are the slug sizes currently documented in the public API documentation – https://developers.digitalocean.com/documentation/v2/#databases still correct?

The product page for MySQL implies there are more sizes available (https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/databases/mysql/) and also more types of machine. The database slugs in the API doc only appear to cover shared-CPU machine types.

There is also an availability-matrix page (https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/platform/availability-matrix/#managed-databases-machine-type-availability). But from this matrix page what becomes obvious is that the API reference is missing all slugs for general-purpose databases and for storage-optimised databases… (No Memory-Optimized MySQL available yet on any region)

Hi there,

Yes indeed, that is a good point and this is correct.

I believe that the machine type for database clusters was introduced fairly recently. In most cases, the public API functionality would not take long to be updated as well to incorporate the new changes. However, in some cases, it takes a bit longer depending on different factors.
