MariaDB Is Now Available on Cloudways Cloud Platform

Developers and designers can deploy websites with MariaDB database in less than 10 minutes.

​​Cloudways, a leading managed cloud hosting platform, announces the integration of MariaDB for all of its users. Users can now launch performance-optimized cloud servers and set up websites with MariaDB database in less than 10 minutes.

Without a reliable and fast database, developers cannot focus on making websites that are apart from the clutter. For that purpose Cloudways has integrated the ultra-fast MariaDB database.

MariaDB, an enhanced drop-in replacement for MySQL, is forked from the original MySQL project that is maintained and developed with the help of Open Source community. As compared to MySQL, it has support for much more storage engines, gives better performance, and is evolving at a much faster pace. With the core team of original MySQL developers behind it, it is fast becoming a defacto choice for both small and large websites.

Cloudways has been a front-runner in the field of managed cloud hosting and will continue to evolve. We are proud of being a company that listens to our consumers feedback and takes the favorable action on it,” Pere Hospital, Chief Technical Officer and Co-Founder of Cloudways said.

“Many websites are now migrating to MariaDB. I feel the major attraction is its focus on speed and performance which makes MariaDB a perfect fit for web apps. Together with a built-in manager, Cloudways is the perfect hosting medium for MariaDB-using websites,” he added.

Cloudways has created a customized formula by utilizing Apache and Nginx web server software to ensure that the website and online stores hosted on its managed servers load 4 times faster than the industry average.

The Cloud Hosting Platform provider makes all efforts to ensure that the servers are completely secure and up-to-date with the latest OS and firmware patches. The state-of-the-art Cloud Console lets users easily administer cloud servers in just a few clicks. The built-in monitoring mechanism and the New Relic addon provide web admin with vital performance reports about the server and the websites on it.

Furthermore, developers can use Git with Cloudways in order to create productivity-oriented workflows.

Cloudways MariaDB Hosting Platform offers more than 15 hosting data center locations through three reliable infrastructure providers, namely Amazon, Google, and DigitalOcean. The pricing plans start at $15.
