MariaDB Platform Managed Service

MariaDB Platform Managed Service

Your enterprise database, managed by our experts.

MariaDB Platform, in the cloud

The MariaDB Platform Managed Database Service allows enterprise organizations to realize the benefits of a cloud database service, including ease of use, but without sacrificing the very things needed to support mission-critical applications, including enterprise features, custom configuration, technical and consultative support, on-demand upgrades and bug fixes/security patches. It’s MariaDB Platform in the cloud, managed by MariaDB (the experts).

Backed by experts

Enterprise architects

MariaDB’s Enterprise Architect team creates a reference database architecture based on both business and application requirements, unlike one-size-fits-all database services from AWS.

Remote DBAs

MariaDB’s Remote DBA team monitors the database and its infrastructure 24×7 to maintain availability and performance, and to ensure the database is secure and protected at all times.

Support engineers

MariaDB support engineers provide both technical as well as consultative support to help customers get the most out of MariaDB Platform, and to resolve any issues they may face.
