Michael Haag

YugabyteDB Managed (formerly Yugabyte Cloud) is a fully managed offering of the YugabyteDB database. It delivers the power of distributed SQL with the ease of use of a database-as-a-service. Developers can create and connect to this infinitely scalable, resilient Cassandra and PostgreSQL compatible database in minutes with zero operational overhead. YugabyteDB Managed makes running YugabyteDB in any cloud effortless, whether you’re building a new application or managing millions of transactions per day with several terabytes of data under management.

YugabyteDB is the database of choice for organizations building cloud native applications that demand a highly scalable and resilient modern architecture. Developers love YugabyteDB for its Postgres compatibility, linear scalability, and resilience but don’t want to worry about the infrastructure, operations, and toil of DBA tasks. Not all enterprises have the expertise, knowledge, or bandwidth to oversee all the functions and understand all of the intricacies of running distributed databases in cloud environments. That’s why developers now love YugabyteDB Managed. They can focus on building the modern cloud native applications that help them innovate and grow their business and not manage infrastructure.

No more manual sharding, backups, upgrades, and monitoring. As a distributed database, YugabyteDB offers the highest availability, and YugabyteDB Managed takes care of hardware failures automatically. Our global support team receives notifications about any issues with your distributed database before you do. You can make full use of the cloud’s elasticity by scaling your cluster up or down with just a few clicks; YugabyteDB Managed takes care of the rest. The whole time your database stays available and operational.

Freedom to deploy in the public cloud with global availability

YugabyteDB Managed abstracts away the underlying cloud complexities, giving you the freedom to build a cloud-agnostic operational model and manage a database across different cloud providers. You can deploy YugabyteDB Managed globally to any of the regions of the chosen cloud provider. This reduces latency, improves resiliency, and helps you comply with critical data residency regulations.

We want to enable your developers to move faster, not slow them down with the worry of cloud vendor lock-in and the burden of a complex migration process. YugabyteDB Managed can be deployed on your choice of AWS and GCP today, and in the future we plan to support Azure deployments as well.

Deploy with confidence with security by design

One of the friction points for organizations—particularly in security-sensitive and regulated industries—concerns data loss, theft, and privacy. When companies contemplate cloud adoption, they correctly focus on the negative impacts these can have. Built with security-by-design principles as outlined in the Yugabyte Security and Trust Center, YugabyteDB Managed enforces security best practices, regardless of which cloud providers and regions you choose to use.

YugabyteDB Managed protects your clusters and cloud infrastructure by automatically employing highly secure encryption in transit and encryption at rest. YugabyteDB Managed also provides DDoS and application-layer protection by automatically defending network protocol and volumetric DDoS attacks. For network isolation, YugabyteDB Managed allows dedicated VPCs and IP allowlists for accepting connections from trusted IP addresses only. Additional features such as identity and access management, database access logging, auditing, and role-based access control, ensure you get best-in-class data security via intuitive admin controls. For more security information, refer to our YugabyteDB Managed security architecture documentation.
