Highly scalable

Scale up at any time to support your business growth. Resize your database clusters at any time to add more CPUs, RAM, and storage. Easily add more nodes to increase your operations and performance.

Free daily backups

Your data is critical. That’s why we ensure it’s backed up automatically every day. Restore data to any point within the previous seven

Automated failover

In the event of a failure, Managed Databases will automatically switch data handling to a standby node to minimize downtime.

Fast, reliable performance

Managed Databases run on enterprise-class hardware for fast performance. Run your clusters on Droplets with shared vCPUs or choose Droplets with 100% dedicated vCPUs for mission critical workloads.

End-to-end security

Databases run in your account’s private network, and only whitelisted requests via the public internet can reach your database. Data is also encrypted in transit and at rest.

Integrated insights & alerting

Understand database performance, resource usage, and errors so that you can efficiently size, scale, and tune your cluster.

Managed databases include critical database-level metrics, such as connections, cache hit ratio, sequential vs indexed scans, throughput, and more.

Cache hit ratio

Cache hit ratio is the percent of reads from the database in-memory cache, as opposed to disk, and is ideally about 99%.


Managed Databases also include cluster resource utilization metrics like CPU, load average, memory usage, and disk usage.

Disk usage

Disk usage is the percent of disk used by all nodes in the cluster. While it will fluctuate, you should maintain disk usage below 90%.


Simple pricing & superior support

Predictable pricing

Always know what you'll pay with monthly caps and flat pricing across all data centers. Spin up a cluster for just $15/month.

World-class support

Three levels of support services are designed to meet your needs whether you are a startup, large business, or anything in between.
