DigitalOcean, the cloud for developing modern apps, is introducing Managed Databases for MySQL and Redis, popular open source relational and in-memory databases, respectively. These offerings eliminate the complexity involved in managing, scaling, and securing database infrastructure, and instead allow developers to focus on building apps.
Launched in February with PostgreSQL as its first offering, DigitalOcean’s Managed Databases service allows developers to create fully-managed database instances in the cloud.
Leveraging DigitalOcean's hallmark simplicity, Managed Databases provides features like worry-free setup and maintenance, free daily backups with point-in-time recovery, standby nodes with automated failovers, end-to-end security and scalable performance.
“With the additions of MySQL and Redis, DigitalOcean now supports three of the most requested database offerings, making it easier for developers to build and run applications, rather than spending time on complex management,” said Shiven Ramji, DigitalOcean’s senior vice president of product. “The developer is not just the DNA of DigitalOcean, but the reason for much of the company’s success. We must continue to build on this success and support developers with the services they need most on their journey toward simple app development.”
DigitalOcean selected MySQL and Redis as the next offerings for its Managed Databases service due to overwhelming demand from its customer base and the developer community at large.
MySQL, an open-source relational database, is the most commonly used data technology among developers1 and the most widely adopted by DigitalOcean users.
Redis is an open-source, in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache and message broker. Redis is one of the top three most adopted data technologies in use among DigitalOcean’s customers.
