PALO ALTO, Calif., November 6, 2018 – ScaleGrid, a rising leader in hosting for MongoDB® and hosting for Redis™*, has just announced support for their first SQL database, fully managed MySQL hosting. The advanced Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) solution allows businesses of all sizes to optimize their MySQL deployments with multi-cloud support, no vendor lock-in, and dedicated servers on leading cloud provider, Microsoft Azure, with support for MySQL on AWS to quickly follow.
The ScaleGrid platform enables MySQL database administrators (DBA’s) to fully automate their operations while still keeping super user admin control over their MySQL clusters and SSH access to their cloud-hosted servers. ScaleGrid is the only DBaaS provider to offer this unique advantage, where other MySQL, MongoDB®, and Redis™ solutions require you to relinquish control to use their fully managed services. Paired with their 24/7 support and 1-hour SLA, MySQL users are able to automate their database management and leverage on-hand troubleshooting expertise without compromising access and influence over their sensitive data. Compare MySQL providers to see how ScaleGrid’s stacks up against Compose, Azure Database, and Amazon RDS.
“Multi-database systems (MDBS) demand has skyrocketed over the past few years as businesses expand past strictly using the traditional relational database management systems,” says Dharshan Rangegowda, Founder and CEO of ScaleGrid. “From the beginning, we designed ScaleGrid with this vision in mind, as DBA’s all the way up to senior IT leadership need a centralized, single pane of glass view into the performance, security, and scalability of their entire database stack in one all-powerful platform.”
ScaleGrid offers two different MySQL hosting solutions, Dedicated Clusters that are all-inclusively hosted and managed through ScaleGrid, and their Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) plans that allow you to host and manage your MySQL clusters in your own Azure account. Their BYOC plan also includes the ability to leverage Reserved Instances to lower your long-term MySQL hosting costs up to 80%, and access premium security features like Virtual Networks (Azure VNET), and Security Groups for advanced access control. ScaleGrid’s MySQL Dedicated Cluster plan starts at $18/month, and their BYOC plan is available for as low as $8/month.
The MySQL launch by ScaleGrid was also introduced with an early-access opportunity for their next SQL solution, PostgreSQL hosting.
