Deploy your fully managed databases in minutes

We handle the provisioning and the management of your databases so you can focus on your code.

Scale quickly with fully managed databases as a service

Build your code and let Scaleway handle your database management and maintenance. We support many versions of the most widely used SQL engines, such as PostgreSQL and MySQL, while ensuring a high level of data security, data availability and 24/7 support.

Why choose Scaleway Managed Database?

Excellent performance/price ratio

With high-end AMD EPYC vCPUs and NVMe SSD storage, our Managed Databases are ready to host your large workloads. Ensure your business continuity with the High Availability option and the automatic backup, healing & failover. In addition, Scaleway offers unlimited and free transfer. This helps make our Database instances extremely cost-effective.

European Cloud for your sensitive data

We are proud to be a truly European cloud provider. All our services are located within the European Union (in the Paris region and in Amsterdam), and therefore secured by its regulations. This allows us to offer you a sovereign and GDPR-compliant cloud platform.

Rich ecosystem

With the included public IP address, you can easily connect your other Scaleway Elements, Scaleway Dedibox, or other external infrastructure solutions. You can quickly import your existing external databases to a Scaleway Database instance. Database management can be performed easily on the Scaleway console. Our API is also available to automate your production.

Features for business continuity

Fully managed

Stay focused on your code, we handle 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.

Hot scaling

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.

Guaranteed performances

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.

High Availability option

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.

Automatic healing & automatic failover

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.

Automatic backups

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 €0.03/GB/month.

Several major versions

Our Database instances are available with PostgreSQL relational database management systems (versions 9.6, 10, 11, 12 and 13) as well as MySQL (version 8). You can customize the settings of your engine according to your needs.

24/7 Ticket Support

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.

BI & Analytics

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.

Application development

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.
