What is IBM Cloud Hyper Protect DBaaS?

IBM Cloud Hyper Protect DBaaS offers 100% tamper-proof, enterprise cloud database environments with high availability for workloads with sensitive data. It is built on LinuxONE technology which provides built-in data encryption along with excellent vertical scalability and performance. It helps protect against threats of data breaches and data manipulation by privileged users and provides a high level of data confidentiality for data owners.

With IBM Cloud™ Hyper Protect DBaaS, you can provision, manage, maintain and monitor databases, MongoDB and PostgreSQL, through standardized APIs. You can also retain your data in a fully encrypted client database without the need for specialized skills.


Data Security and Confidentiality

Leveraging LinuxONE pervasive encryption and IBM Secure Service Container technology, Hyper Protect DBaaS provides workload isolation, restricted administrator access and tamper protection for data at rest and in flight. Data owners maintain complete control over the data in an encrypted cloud database.

Developer friendly

Hyper Protect DBaaS provides standardized APIs to provision, manage, maintain, and monitor databases. For developers, it‘s easy to get started without specialized database skills.

Fully managed

Hyper Protect DBaaS provides non-disruptive version upgrades, monitoring of the system by IBM SREs, and around-the-clock support from IBM Cloud. Developers can focus on building applications rather than managing availability, backups, logging, monitoring, scaling, hardware setup, redundancy, and software patching.

High availability and security

Every Hyper Protect DBaaS instance is built as a clustered configuration consisting of one primary database node and two secondary database nodes (replicas that back up the primary), each node installed in a unique Availability Zone with automatic daily backups in the local storage. It has vertical scalability up to machine limits and ability to scale large databases with no sharding.
