Managed databases?

Hi Linode

Just wondering if you have managed databases in the pipeline or if it's something you're considering? Bit reluctant to use a competitor because I would prefer to use Linode for this, but I am not a db admin, nor do I want to be.

Hey there, we're considering introducing a managed database service, and we've added this request to our internal tracker towards that end. Let us know if you have any specific requests for this sort of product or if you have any other comments.

Yes—we anticipate releasing a managed databased service in 2020. No specific details to share at the moment, but keep an eye on our blog for developments!

This is top priority for me too. Hope that Redis and MySQL 8 will be supported.

Thanks for the interest in managed databases. I'd love to see Postgres, since (in my experience) it's the most widely deployed free database. Cheers

I would love to see managed databases in Linode! We are planning to migrate some of our apps. Linode is a good choice, and it would be immensely better if we had the choice of using managed Postgres!

Hi, any news? I know it’s still 2020, but having an update would be nice.

@thedotedge We're excited for this too! We're working to get this offering out to you all, and we'll definitely provide updates on our blog, when we have them.

Just want to throw my hat into this ring - having managed postgres/redis options comparable to Digital Ocean will really help me keep projects on Linode, where I'd much rather be.

If there's any way to get in on a beta or anything like that, I'd be interested!

Hi, Do we have any approximate launch date Q2, Q3, Q4 of 2020 ?

It would interesting if you could take it one step further than Digitalocean, like having a ProxySQL type layer in between, through which we can manage sending 'write' queries to Primary server and 'read' queries to Read-only servers.

Kind regards
