Managed Database Service is now Generally Available

17 September, 2021

Catalyst Cloud’s kiwi-first Managed Database Service is now a Generally Available Service. Released from Beta, the fully managed API driven database makes provisioning, managing and scaling fully managed databases much faster and easier.

The service supports the highly popular cloud-based database engines, PostgreSQL and MySQL, with support for further database engines to come in the future. The Catalyst Cloud team have extensive experience in both engines and have wrapped that expertise in an easy to access and run service.

It’s now even easier to customise, back-up and restore with this release including user-friendly enhancements to the web dashboard, and simple API calls. Database replicas can be created to scale out, increasing resiliency and availability. And with Catalyst Cloud’s pay as you go pricing, you only pay for what you use.

Save weeks – self-provision in under a minute

Where it can take weeks to self-provision a relational database, with Catalyst Cloud’s Managed Database Service, IT administrators can choose a database version, the compute instance size and get everything up and running in less than a minute.

Chief Technology Officer, David Zanetti, said, “with the two most popular database engines for cloud-based systems supported by our Managed Database Service, it’s time to escape the high price of legacy database systems”. He went on to say, “We’ve had a lot of interest in the Service in Beta, and now it is Generally Available, we hope more kiwi businesses will take the opportunity to use the Service, keeping all their data safely in Aotearoa under New Zealand laws”.

In line with its strong commitment to business ethics and social responsibility, Catalyst Cloud has made all the code they developed to create their Managed Database Service open source to benefit organisations here and worldwide.
