Welcome to this week’s Planets9s, covering all the latest resources and technologies we create around automation and management of open source database infrastructures.

Check out the new NinesControl for MySQL & MongoDB in the cloud

This week we were happy to announce NinesControl, which is taking its first steps to offer quick and easy automation and management of databases for the cloud to developers and admins of all skill levels. Built on the capabilities of ClusterControl, NinesControl is a database management cloud service, with no need to install anything. It enables users to uniformly and transparently deploy and manage polyglot databases on any cloud, with no vendor lock-in. If you haven’t seen NinesControl yet, do check it out!

Once you register for NinesControl and provide your cloud “access key”, the service will launch droplets in your region of choice and provision database nodes on them. In this blog post we show you how to configure that access to DigitalOcean and AWS. You’ll be all set to start deploying and monitoring your database cluster in the cloud of your choice with NinesControl.
