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.

IBM Cloud Hyper Protect DBaaS benefits

Industry-leading security for cloud data and digital assets

Access full control over your encryption keys, with the option of using keys protected by the FIPS 140-2 Level 4-certified hardware security module.

Reduced risk of compromised data

Get in-built protection against privileged access threats with LinuxONE technology-enforced security for your cloud and digital assets. Even the cloud admins don’t have access to your data.

Regulatory compliance support

Help satisfy regulatory compliance through data protection and controls on external and privileged user access to your databases.

IBM Cloud Hyper Protect DBaaS features

Secure your data

Learn more

IBM Cloud Hyper Protect DBaaS leverages LinuxONE pervasive encryption and IBM Secure Service Container technology to provide 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.

High availability and disaster recovery

Learn more

Every IBM Cloud 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 is installed in a unique Availability Zone with automatic daily backups in the local storage. It has vertical scalability up to machine limits and the ability to scale large databases with no sharding.

Management responsibilities

Learn more

IBM Cloud Hyper Protect DBaaS provides non-disruptive version upgrades to monitor 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.
