DBaaS has never been so convenient and reliable — time to get started!
DBaaS: databases as a service
No administration. No downtime. With hourly billing
Three top reasons to choose DBaaS from Hostman
Working with a database is as easy as using any other service. It is time for system administrators to retire!
Hostman databases are protected from external and internal security threats. In addition, data can be backed up for extra protection.
Don't 'bury' your money in complex and expensive solutions. Use DBaaS - and pay only for the resources actually used.
Work with the Database as a familiar service
The most popular relational DBMS from Oracle. It is developed on an open source model.
Object-relational database management system. Supported by most UNIX platforms.
A high-performance DBMS that operates on a key-value model. It is often used for caching.
A classic DBMS focused on document storage and JSON query support.
Columnar analytical DBMS. Supports queries to a large array of structured data in real time. (Coming soon)
A search and analytics resource system for application monitoring and event logs. (Coming soon)

Answers to Your Questions
How can I get started with the DBaaS service?
It's as easy as placing an order in an online store. In the Hostman control panel, you can create a cloud database in just a couple of seconds. Simply select the appropriate DBMS and configuration, place an order, and you're up and running.
You don't need to customize the database environment and keep it up and running. Everything is already in place. Focus on important business tasks, and Hostman experts will take care of the maintenance!
Are there any limitations on the number of databases or data volume in your pricing plans?
There is only one thing limiting you - the chosen tariff and the amount of resources that strictly corresponds to it. When you choose a tariff and create DBaaS — you create a cluster, within which you can create as many databases as you want. Each cluster is charged separately, and resources according to the tariff will be distributed among the databases it contains.
Is data backup supported, and how often is it performed?
You can create database backups directly in the Hostman control panel: manually at any time or enable automatic backups once a day, once a week or once a month.
Can I easily migrate my existing database to your service?
Request free help from Hostman engineers — create a database and then make a migration request via ticket. We will do everything quickly and in the best way.
What tools are provided for managing and administering databases?
You can use any familiar web interfaces for database management: Adminer, phpMyAdmin, etc. But it is most convenient to do it directly in the Hostman control panel.
In the Hostman control panel you can:
Monitor load and resource consumption schedules,
add users and manage their access rights,
customize editing parameters,
connect extensions and increase the functionality of the database,
create backups, manage IP addresses, change tariffs and so on.
Do you support automatic scaling of resources based on load?
We suggest reserving the required resources as part of the tariff. You can always reserve additional resources if you need to increase performance, and you will always pay only for the used resources. And you can lower the tariff and reduce the number of resources upon request to Hostman support.
What advantages does your service offer compared to installing and managing databases on my own servers?
Cloud databases are any resources you need for your data at arm's length. Cloud databases allow you to significantly reduce the labor costs of setup, administration, updating — all of this is either automated or our technical experts are ready to take care of it.
How is data security ensured in the DBaaS service?
Cloud databases are well protected from unauthorized access - only authorized users can access the data. User management takes place directly in the state-of-the-art Hostman control panel - no additional web interfaces are required.
We also guarantee 99.9% SLA uptime and place servers exclusively in the most reliable Tier IV data centers that meet all international security standards:
- ISO: standards for data center design,
- PCI DSS: payment data processing standards,
- GDPR: European Union standards for personal data protection.
And you can store confidential data on a private local network and connect additional protection against DDoS attacks and other external threats.
What scaling options are provided by your DBaaS service?
Unlike traditional databases, DBaaS can be scaled with ease — literally with a few clicks in the control panel. And if you need to reduce resources, contact our support — we'll get you up and running in no time.
How is monitoring and performance tracking of databases handled in DBaaS?
In the Hostman control panel there are several graphs that can be monitored at any time: CPU load, buffer usage, amount of free disk memory and so on.
Are there any availability guarantees for databases in your DBaaS service?
Yes, we guarantee a 99.9% SLA level of data availability, which is explicitly stated in the offer. Thanks to Tier IV data centers, state-of-the-art server hardware and reliable Hostman technical support — your data will always be online.
What level of support do you offer, and how can assistance be obtained in case of issues?
The Hostman team includes experienced administrators and developers. You will always get the support you expect to receive. We're on call 24/7 via chat, mail and phone — and respond in minutes (or faster).
