ScaleGrid Hosting Reviews
At ScaleGrid, we provide fully managed MongoDB, Redis, MySQL, and PostgreSQL hosting, taking all the headache out of managing a high-performance production deployment. The platform automates all of your time-consuming tasks, such as distributing your data across regions, scheduling backups, upgrading versions, patching OS, log rotations, and dynamically scaling, so you IT teams can focus on building a better application vs. managing their complex data infrastructures. We're also the only DBaaS platform that enables you to host in your own cloud hosting account, enabling you to leverage advanced capabilities like Virtual Private Clouds (VPC & VNET), Security Groups, and Reserved Instances to save up to 75% on long-term Web Hosting costs.
As a multi-database hosting platform, we also allow our users to manage all of their database clusters in one single pane view console instead of coordinating across multiple platforms. This significantly improves our users efficiency and reduces database sprawl.
ScaleGrid was establish in 2012 in Seattle, WA (Washington). ScaleGrid is targeted for SMB and enterprise customers who are deploying databases on public or private clouds. Our solution handles all the operational aspects of running a production database and lets them focus solely on the development aspects.
Our solution offers several unique features that make it stand out in the Database-as-a-Service market. ScaleGrid is a Polyglot, multi-cloud solution that allows our customers to deploy the database of their choice on the cloud of their choice. We can also seamlessly migrate your databases from one cloud to another. This enables our customers to prevent and protect their infrastructures from vendor or cloud lock-in. ScaleGrid also supports on-premise or hybrid cloud deployments - so you can deploy your databases on both your private cloud or any of the popular public clouds.
ScaleGrid also provides customers full access and administrative control over their database deployments. This enables our customers to use most of their existing scripts and tools and also work with other database consultants they have been working with historically.
At ScaleGrid, we are committed to data protection and have incorporated security best practices for our infrastructure to ensure the safety of our customer’s data. Our customers are able to leverage our advanced security features to protect their data. We support “Encryption in transit” to preserve the privacy of data as it moves across the network. You can also enable “Encryption at rest” to ensure that your data is encrypted on disk. Once you enable encryption at rest your backups are also encrypted. Customers can also use IP whitelists to enable access control for their databases.
We at ScaleGrid also enable our customers and users to deploy their database servers in their very personal Virtual Private Clouds on AWS (VPC) and Azure (VNET) through our Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) plans. This enables them to isolate and protect their databases in their own virtual network. Our BYOC plan also allows our customers to leverage Security Groups to lock down access to their servers using cloud security groups.
The greatest advantage of our platform is also our competitions greatest weakness, control. We are the only DBaaS solution that allows our customers to keep full super user administrative control over their databases. Sacrificing administrative access is one of the main reasons why businesses decide against leverage a DBaaS product, as they want the ability to access and control their own databases without blindly putting their trust in a third-party service. As a product built by database experts, we fully understood this concern and designed our product from inception with the benefit of allowing our customers to operate as admins of their own data. While many of our customers never have to use this advantage as our service is fully managed for them, it provides the necessary peace of mind of knowing they can access and administer changes to their databases at any time if needed in the future.
