MySQL is one of the most used relational database systems for web applications. The cloudControl MySQL dedicated Add-on offers all benefits of the relational MySQL database without database administration or update hassle and allows developers to work with the tools they know and love. Key benefits include multi availability zone RDS with automatic failover, daily backups and highly optimized server configuration.


Please note that you can’t automatically downgrade to plan options with smaller storage sizes.

We are delighted to announce that we have just released the new pricing for our MySQLd Add-on. This is good news for everyone – if you are an existing customer you will benefit from the lower prices retroactive from the 1st of February 2013. Of course new customers gain too as they will benefit from the generally lower price point of the MySQLd Add-on. The new lower pricing concerns all MySQLd databases apart from the micro version.

Our dedicated MySQL Add-on offers enhanced availability for your production database workloads. MySQLd runs as Multi-AZ deployment and features a standby instance which maintains an up-to-date copy of the primary database. In case of an instance, storage, or network failure, MySQLd automatically initiates a failover from the primary to the standby.

Information about the available MySQLd plans and the new pricing can be found on the MySQLd Add-on page.
