We’ve put together a list of some common questions you might have about ScaleGrid and migrating your database. If you have a question that isn’t answered here, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

ScaleGrid was built by database experts to provide an enterprise-grade Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) hosting solutions and powerful management tools. Our fully managed platform is used by thousands of developers, startups and enterprise businesses and handles all of your database operations at any scale. We currently support MongoDB® Database, Redis™, MySQL and PostgreSQL on private clouds and public clouds with cloud providers  such as Akamai, Oracle Cloud, and DigitalOcean, and on-premise support for VMWare and OpenStack, along with sophisticated support options and consulting services.

We have a written guide available here in our help documentation.

There will be some potential short downtime during the transition over to ScaleGrid. If you follow our guide, the downtime will be relatively short if you have a smaller deployment, however it all depends on the data size of your deployment(s). The larger your data size is, the longer your downtime will be as the import will take longer to finish.

ScaleGrid has a variety of different support options available. You can find out more about our support options here in our help documentation.

If you decide to migrate your deployments over to ScaleGrid, great! Your deployments will still be stored on Akamai infrastructure just as before, only thing that really changes is your connection string for your application. Your MongoDB® deployment will now also be managed through the ScaleGrid console, which provides many more added features such as role based account security (RBAC), slow query analyzer and configurable backups.

If you have more questions, feel free to reach out to our support team who will be able to assist you with any questions or issues you might want addressed. You can reach them in the console under the “Support” tab, or via email at [email protected].
