Press Release

OVHcloud, the European leader with a global footprint in the cloud industry, is scaling its Database as a Service (DBaaS) catalogue with the general availability[1] of Managed Databases for MongoDB as well as the free beta version[2] of four major databases: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis and Kafka.

As more and more organisations want to move their databases to the cloud to increase their agility and scalability, OVHcloud brings them reliability and compliance with a fully managed service based on its trusted cloud infrastructure.

“We leverage two strategic partnerships respectively with MongoDB, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDB) and Aiven, to deliver a complete catalogue of Database-as-a-Service offerings. OVHcloud managed database solutions offer customers of all sizes a trusted cloud alternative to improve their operational efficiency while keeping full control over their data,” commented Sylvain Rouri, Chief Sales Officer at OVHcloud. "Delegating database administration and migrating to the cloud are two ways for organisations to focus on their business and accelerate innovation.”

The managed database solutions enable developers to not have to worry about time-consuming database configuration, set-up, and maintenance of the software, the backups, and hardware infrastructure needed to run the service securely. Additionally, they are compatible with all OVHcloud solutions (Bare Metal, Hosted Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Virtual Private Servers) as well as companies’ on-premise infrastructure.

With Managed Databases for MongoDB – which was primarily launched in beta back in June 2021, its now available today for all – users benefit from the latest and official version of MongoDB and can get started within minutes thanks to OVHcloud’s vertically integrated system.

“We use several million documents on MongoDB; thus we used Managed Databases for MongoDB to improve our efficiency and simplify our usage. We achieved a 20% time saving on data imports without changing the code,” explains Romain Karmann, Cofounder and Lead Developer at Lota.Cloud, a Cloud expense management platform.

“The big data provided by different travel price comparison engines is critical for our travel recommendation business; we need to access them non-stop, comments Vincent El Khatib, Cofounder of, a member of the OVHcloud Startup Program. Thanks to Managed Databases for MongoDB, the simple and fast deployment of our databases enabled us to substantially accelerate the qualification phase before release.”
