Powerful & scalable

Quickly and easily spin up a high-performance MySQL cluster.

Worry-free setup & maintenance

Launch a MySQL cluster with just a few clicks and then access it via our simplified UI or an API. Never worry about maintenance operations or updates – we handle that for you.

Highly scalable

Scale up at anytime to support your business growth. Easily spin up read- only nodes to scale read operations.

Free daily backups

Your data is critical. That’s why we ensure it’s backed up automatically every day.  Restore data to any point within the previous seven days.

End-to-end security

Databases run in your account’s private network, which isolates communication at the account or team level. Requests via the public internet can still reach your database, but only if you whitelist specific inbound sources. Data is also encrypted in transit and at rest.

Automated failover

In the event of a failure, Managed Databases will automatically switch data handling to a standby node to minimize downtime.

Fast, reliable performance

Managed Databases run on enterprise-class hardware and SSD storage, giving you lightning-fast performance.

Integrated insights & alerting

Understand database performance, resource usage, and errors so that you can efficiently size, scale, and tune your MySQL cluster.
