Take your web projects to the next level
If you are looking to deploy a website, you will undoubtedly need a database. Databases optimise the overall functioning of content management systems (CMS), such as WordPress or PrestaShop (for e-commerce websites).
Simplify your work by centralising your databases on the same instance. Whether your web projects are operated by OVHcloud or another provider, our instances connected to the public network meet a wide range of use cases — from website databases to mobile applications, SaaS applications, and much more.

Get total flexibility for configuration and scalability
You can create as many databases and projects as you like, and assign separate accesses to them.
With the advanced features included with your service, you can configure your environment to suit your needs. Depending on your database engine, you can modify different settings directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel.
Need to scale up your databases for growing projects? Upgrade to a higher solution in just a few minutes. We offer up to 4GB RAM and up to 64GB storage space.
Optimise your tables and queries
For intensive processing, you can temporarily exceed the RAM/CPU resources allocated to you, so that your business is not affected.
Get phpMyAdmin and phpPgAdmin to simplify your database management (available only by enabling access to OVHcloud Web Hosting plans via the OVHcloud Control Panel).
A query that takes too long to close can block other queries, increasing your database’s overall response time. By checking your logs, you can identify your slowest queries and optimise them accordingly.
Your questions answered
What is a database?
A database is a set of structured information that facilitates the collection, management, reading and updating of data. A database management system (also called DBMS) is required to administer databases. You can use a DBMS to perform queries in order to search for, modify, add or delete data from your database.
What database management systems are available?
We support MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL and Redis.
MySQL, MariaDB and PostgreSQL are known as relational or SQL databases. With this model, data is placed in tables with rows and columns. Any information in the database can be retrieved using the table, column, and primary key names.
Redis is known as a key-value or NoSQL database. This type is designed to deliver the highest possible performance.
We also follow market trends very closely, so we will support more DBMS solutions in the future.
What versions are available?
Most of the time, we offer several versions of each database management system.
Follow our end-of-sale/end-of-life announcements, and the details of the DBMS versions.
What are the differences between an SQL database and a NoSQL database?
SQL databases are relational, and store structured data. They work using SQL (Structured Query Language) queries.
NoSQL databases are non-relational, and store unstructured data. They work with queries specific to each DBMS.
Why choose a Web Cloud Databases solution?
With Web Cloud Databases, you can group as many databases as you want within the same service. This includes guaranteed RAM, and included services that deliver optimal performance to go even further.
In short, the Web Cloud Databases solution has been designed to simplify database management.
