All Your Bases. Covered.
With IBM Cloud Databases, you can free up your time to focus on building your app instead of managing your database.
Get started quickly with a product that offers compliance certifications, integrations for volume encryption key management, and provides a serverless scaling API that let’s you start small and grow large without worrying about a picking an “instance class”.
Why IBM Cloud Databases?
IBM Cloud Databases is the culmination of our long experience with PostgreSQL, etcd, Redis, Elasticsearch and RabbitMQ. These services are scalable, cost-efficient, and readily usable for enterprise application development.
Built on Kubernetes
Each database deployment starts life as a highly available multi-member deployment with the ability to scale vertically to take full advantage of the performance and scaling capabilities of your database.
We provide data-in-motion encryption through TLS and at-rest encryption for data on disk and backups. Each database allows an integration with IBM Key Protect; so for data at rest, clients can bring their own key and manage its lifecycle.
To protect your application against single data center outages, we always deploy in a Multi-AZ architecture in IBM Cloud public regions, with a 99.95% SLA.
Backup orchestration comes out of the box with a 30-day retention window and uses IBM Cloud’s Cross-Regional Object Storage, where available, for increased resiliency against in-region disasters.
