IBM Cloud Databases for PostgreSQL and Redis are now available as GA services in the IBM Cloud Frankfurt region
These database-as-a-service products are fully managed, highly available, and built from the ground up with enterprise security in mind. These services are scalable, cost-efficient, and readily usable for enterprise application development. All databases come with serverless scaling, backup orchestration, and bring-your-own-encryption-key integrations for data at rest.
To protect your application against single data center outages, we are deploying in a Multi-AZ architecture across three data centers in Frankfurt with a 99.95% Uptime SLA. All backups are sent to IBM Cloud Object Storage’s EU Cross-Regional Service to ensure business continuity while maintaining compliance and data residency requirements.
To learn more about native IBM Cloud integrations for IBM Cloud Databases, review our General Availability announcement.
To get going quickly, review:
Get started with IBM Cloud Databases for PostgreSQL
PostgreSQL is an object-relational SQL database that is complemented by powerful enhancements like indexable JSON, publish/subscribe functions, and drivers. The technology is commonly used for web and mobile transactional applications, business intelligence, and geospatial analysis with PostGIS.
Get started with IBM Cloud Databases for Redis
Redis is a powerful, open source, in-memory key value store that acts as a cache, queue, or transient store designed for the modern application stack. Applications typically use the Redis for database and web caching or counting and queuing.
