Use the Rackspace Cloud Control Panel or Cloud Databases API
If you have a Rackspace Cloud account, you can start using Rackspace Cloud Databases via your Cloud Control Panel or the API.
Connect your application to your database!
Rackspace Cloud Databases delivers incredibly quick MySQL performance. Using container-based virtualisation instead of traditional hardware virtualisation technology results in speedier applications that get quick access to your data.
We run MySQL connected to SAN storage, with built-in data replication. For you that means greater reliability, and less downtime for your application.
Rackspace Cloud Databases automates the deployment, configuration, and patching of the database server. Why? To reduce your operational costs, and let your team focus on more business-critical tasks.
Rackspace Cloud Databases is the first relational database service built on the OpenStack® Nova Compute codebase - reliable, safe hosting without locking your data into one proprietary platform.
