Powerful & scalable

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

Worry-free setup & maintenance

Launch a database 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 any time to support your business growth.

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.

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 giving you lightning-fast performance. Run your clusters on Droplets (cloud VMs) with shared vCPUs or choose Droplets with 100% dedicated vCPUs for mission critical workloads.

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.
