While many of our customers utilize ClusterControl on-premise to automate and manage their open source databases, several are deploying ClusterControl alongside their applications in the cloud. Utilizing the cloud allows your business and applications to benefit from the cost-savings and flexibility that come with cloud computing. In addition you don’t have to worry about purchasing, maintaining and upgrading equipment.
Along the same lines, ClusterControl offers a suite of database automation and management functions to give you full control of your database infrastructure. With it you can deploy, manage, monitor and scale your databases, securely and with ease through our point-and-click interface.
As the load on your application increases… Your cloud environment can be expanded to provide more computing power to handle that load. In much the same way ClusterControl utilizes state-of-the-art database, caching, and load balancing technologies that enable you to scale-out the load on your databases and spread that load evenly across nodes.
These performance benefits are just some of the many reasons to leverage ClusterControl to manage your open source database instances in the cloud. From advanced monitoring to backups and automatic failover, ClusterControl is your true end-to-end database management solution.
Below you will find some of our top resources to help you get your databases up-and-running in the cloud…
