Managed Database

Last Updated on 2024-04-11


A Managed Database (MySQL 8) is a cloud computing service in which LayerStack helps manage the underlying infrastructure while providing clients with access to the database itself using command-line applications.

The cloud infrastructure, software, security firewall, and high-availability systems are configured automatically. This can save hours of time compared to manually setting up a database, accelerating the process of connecting clients' applications through requirements analysis, instance provisioning, and configuration, as well as daily administrative task management.

Moreover, the scalability of managed database services effortlessly grow alongside a client's business, ensuring that it will never outpace the database solution.

Managed Database is available in Singapore & Hong Kong regions.
