Services included with your Private SQL database
Choice of database type
Choose from MySQL, MariaDB or PostgreSQL relational database management systems, and manage your databases via phpMyAdmin or phpPgAdmin.
Unlimited number of databases
You can create as many databases as you like, within the limits of your Private SQL server resources. Using the OVHcloud Control Panel makes it easier to manage databases.
Automatic backups of all your databases are taken daily. You can easily find and download them via the OVHcloud Control Panel.
Up to 200 concurrent connections
Your Private SQL server allows up to 200 concurrent connections, and a maximum of 50 connections per user.
512MB to 4GB of RAM guaranteed
The RAM of your Private SQL server is guaranteed for better performance. This means that pre-loaded data is more readily available than just reading a hard drive.
You can transfer and download your local files to your database server easily and securely, via SFTP access.
*Domain name creation and transfer is free for the first year, then renewals are charged at the annual price of the extension from the following list: .com, .net, .biz, .info, .org, .name, .fr, .re, .eu, .be, .es, .it, .de, .at, .co.uk, .me.uk, .org.uk, .nl, .us, .ca, .cz, .ch, .in, .lt, .dk, .pm, .so, .se, .yt, .tf , .wf, .pt, .pl, .ovh, .xyz. Not valid for extensions that include free transfer.
Manage your databases efficiently and test your requests
phpMyAdmin and phpPgAdmin, the most popular open-source interfaces for managing databases on PHP servers, are available by default. You can save valuable time by formulating your queries directly in SQL, for example, to perform tests when creating a website. The graphical interface will provide you with a global view of the databases managed on your SQL server.
Optimise your tables and queries by retrieving logs from Private SQL
A query that takes too long to close can block other queries, which in turn increases your database’s overall response time. Logs can be used to identify slow queries, and optimise your tables and requests. This means you will avoid getting a "too many connections" error, which is common when connections to your database have not closed properly and start to accumulate.
Get flexible configuration, and take your web projects to the next level
With the advanced features (AUTOCOMMIT, max_allowed_packed, max_connections, innodb_buffer_pool_size, TMPDIR, etc.) included with your Private SQL server, you can configure your environments to suit your needs.
Manage and monitor your databases from the OVHcloud Control Panel
Find general information and actions for managing your MySQL server. With Private MySQL servers, you can track metrics for RAM usage and active connections. Managing SQL databases has never been so simple.
Your questions answered
What is an SQL database?
A database is a set of structured information that facilitates the collection, management, consultation and updating of data. To administer a database, you can use DBMS/RDBMS (relational database management system) software. You can use it to perform SQL (Structured Query Language) queries to search, modify, add and delete data from your SQL DB.
Example of an SQL query to view database information: SELECT name FROM client
Example of an SQL query to create a new table: CREATE TABLE table_name
