Managed Database for PostgreSQL and MySQL

Fully managed PostgreSQL and MySQL databases in seconds.
Worry-free hosting for your most valuable assets.

Keep innovating instead of managing

Stay focused on your core values: we handle backup administration, updates, setup and settings, and leave you in control of managing users, permissions, allowed IPs, and advanced settings to customize and secure your database.

Build in scalability and security features

Leverage automatic healing, failover, backups & snapshots. Databases can be set in High Availability, with a second standby node on a different hypervisor. Your data is redundant and its integrity is therefore guaranteed.

Fully powered & managed by Scaleway

Keep your customers’ data in Europe within our regions in Paris, Amsterdam & Warsaw. Built entirely on a Scaleway-designed technical stack, we guarantee true sovereignty from the infrastructure to the software level.
