Relational DB supports rapid software delivery requirements by providing speedy access to a high performance, enterprise-hardened relational database instance built on our high performance cloud platform. Our datbase-as-a-service gives you a working database instance in no time, without any of the headaches associated with deploying the underlying compute infrastructure. And just as importantly, you can easily scale resources at the click of a button as your needs change.
Software development today happens at warp-speed, so no one can afford long lead times to deploy physical database infrastructure. CenturyLink’s Relational DB service expedites access to an enterprise-hardened relational database instance, which means your team will be uploading data and digging into application development in minutes.
The CenturyLink Relational DB service is deployed on our high performance cloud platform. Promising 15,000 IOPs minimum (with maximum IOPs spiking considerably higher), this platform was purpose-built for distributed workloads, particularly for data scale.
Only those organizations who can adapt and evolve will survive in this business climate. That means embracing agile development processes to remain relevant and competitive. As IT departments experience ever increasing pressure to respond to business demands, and to increase agility, they need to adopt better tools. Relational DB enables agility by delivering speedy deployment of a fully functional relational database instance.
The challenge for business has long been how to provide accelerated IT on-demand. With ever increasing competition, organizations are ramping up cycles to increase velocity of market-ready product and services. Relational DB Service enables customers to provision both MySQL-Compatible and Microsoft SQL database environments on-demand. No need to purchase new hardware or manage complex licensing models.
Relational DB Service can also help transition a database through the application development process. During early phases, you can provision databases in low-cost configurations geared toward development activities. As the app progresses toward production, databases can be seamlessly scaled for production, reconfigured with higher levels of availability and performance.
Common use cases for CenturyLink's Relational DB Service include:
Persistent, high-performance storage for every enterprise scenario. Easily add backup & DR capabilities as needed.
A scalable platform for deploying applications into production across any cloud infrastructure – private, public or hosted.
Connect networks within a particular data center through the use of configurable firewall policies, and create firewall policies that connect different data centers.
