Coming Soon! Early Access to Managed Databases for MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis, and MongoDB.
Managed Databases is about to enter beta, making it easier for you to deploy high-performance database clusters while deferring managed tasks like configurations, managing high availability, disaster recovery, backups, and data replication to us. We’re starting with support for MySQL and adding PostgreSQL, Redis, and MongoDB in the coming months. If you’d like early access to begin your testing of Managed Databases for MySQL, register now for our beta program. You can also sign up for email notifications as we iterate on the product and expand database availability.
