Relational Database Service (RDS)

Databases to suit your needs

When it comes to the structured storage and use of data, databases have become virtually indispensable. Experts often use relational databases thanks to the varied possibilities they offer. Clouds enable databases to be used “as a service”: Database software and the corresponding hardware infrastructure is packetized at the push of a button and high-availability databases are provided in a matter of minutes – for tests, development or continuous operation.

Relational Database Service in the Open Telekom Cloud

The Relational Database Service offers a demand-oriented use of databases in the Open Telekom Cloud. The RDS includes twelve flavors for implementing databases for a wide range of requirements. The current versions of mySQL, PostgreSQL and MS SQL are available as relational database software. The RDS offers an automatic backup function and point-in-time recovery for the previous 35 days. Numerous management tools analyze the performance of the database. Database operation can be optimized on the basis of resource utilization over time and the evaluation speed.

The RDS supports high availability, even across different availability zones, and a mirrored standby database can be added to the primary database. Up to five read replicas can be added to a database cluster. The RDS is also available directly via an Elastic IP. Databases can be expanded to up 4 GB during ongoing operation. It is also possible to upgrade a single-instance database to an active/standby database. Billing is based on the hourly prices of the selected virtual machines (VMs), while additional storage space for backups and images is billed in accordance with the method used for the respective storage variant.
