Stay focused on your code, we handle all your database management. Don’t lose time on your Database instances’ backup administration, updates, setup or settings. You are still in control of managing users, permissions, allowed IPs (ACLs), and advanced settings to customize and secure your Database.
Need more resources? Duplicate or increase your Database instances’ size on the fly from Scaleway console to speed up your data processing and allocate more space. Our Databases are powered by a wide range of instances, so you can find the right mix of vCPU power, RAM and storage capacity. There is no downtime when you scale your infrastructure!
Our databases are built using our DEV and GP virtual instances, so they benefit from the same stability and performance guarantees. We use the instance’s local volume to guarantee high-performance disk access. Choose DB-GP instances for your critical and resource-intensive databases. You can track key database metrics via API, and get visual statistics from the Scaleway console.
A database instance configured in high availability (H.A.) mode is always provisioned on two nodes: a primary node and a secondary node in synchronous replication, also called a standby node. We also ensure that your instances run on different hypervisors. If the primary node is no longer operational, the secondary node will take over. Your data is redundant and its integrity is therefore guaranteed.
Database instances are continuously monitored and benefit from our auto-healing feature. In the case of an H.A. configuration, if a node becomes unavailable, the standby node will become active in less than 10 seconds (auto-failover). The failing node is then replaced and reconfigured automatically.
Your backups are automatically insured and are customizable from the Scaleway console. You can manage their frequency and retention time. You can also deactivate or reactivate the automation. Your backups are compressed and charged €0.02/GB/month.
Our Database instances are available with PostgreSQL relational database management systems (versions 9.6, 10, 11 and 12) as well as MySQL (version 8 in beta test). You can customize the settings of your engine according to your needs.
We ensure your services are always up and running. Our technical assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer all your questions and to assist you. Simply open a new ticket in case of a problem. You can also reach our support directly by phone or to get faster responses if you upgrade your support plan.
Popular Use Cases for Database-as-a-Service
Our database instances are ideal for e-commerce or retail companies that need to process a high number of transactions per second. PostgreSQL is a suitable solution for managing OLTP protocols (Online Transaction Processing). You also quickly deploy and scale-up your database according to the seasonal needs of your business.
Clone your database instance and run analysis of your sales by generating reports (usually resources-intensive), so you don’t affect the performance of your local database. You’ll be able to accurately target your customers and make the most profitable decisions for your business. You can also combine our General Purpose instances with our Managed Database service to host your BI applications.
Provision your databases in a few minutes during your development cycles. This way you save time and money by avoiding time-consuming installation and administration tasks. Easily duplicate your production database into test or development environments.
