Rackspace Announce Private Beta for MySQL Cloud Database

Rackspace have announced the Rackspace MySQL Cloud Database Private Beta for US customers by invitation only, says the Rackspace blog.

Historically, customers running relational databases in the cloud have suffered from poor and inconsistent performance as a result of the limitations inherited from the underlying hardware virtualization platform. These constraints are common across most infrastructure providers, including Rackspace.

Rackspace has taken a fundamentally different approach to solving this problem by eliminating the overhead of traditional virtualization platforms and utilizing a container-based solution to provide a high performance MySQL relational database service. This solution provides resource isolation and allows you to quickly and easily automate complex database administration tasks.

Designed specifically for databases, our offering leverages dedicated SAN storage with built-in data replication that gives you high-speed access and redundancy for your data.

Currently, the Rackspace MySQL Cloud Database API operations for the Private Beta include:

• List, add, and remove database instances
• List, add, and remove databases
• List, add, and remove database users
• Enable root user access
