Why ClearDB?

ClearDB is a faster, stronger, safer and more reliable way to get data to your MYSQL applications,
no matter where you (or your applications) are in the world.

Global Architecture
ClearDB is designed from the ground up around the premise of failure in order to provide true high availability and low latency performance to your MYSQL powered applications.
Scheduled Backups
Your database is backed in multiple regions and in multiple time zones to ensure that your data is available. You can also create instant backups or restore existing backup with our backup management tools.
Advanced Security
Whether your data is in your database, on the wire or in a backup, it’s encrypted to keep it sage and secure We don’t take chances with your information. You can also encrypt your connections via our SSL certificates.
Always on Monitoring
Our team monitors your database 24 hours per day, 7 days a week to make sure that it’s always available and secure.
Simple, Effective Tools
Our graphical tools enable you to easily performance quick analysis on important database statistics. We also give you easy access to backups that you can restore with just a click of the mouse.
Easy Management API
Hook directly into ClearDB’s management API to automate backup operations and get real-time status info about your database.

How it Works

ClearDB creates multi-master and multi- master with multi-replica MySQL configurations in regions that are important to you to provide your applications with a fully redundant solution that can service outages, network failures and even natural disasters. You choose how much computing power and storage you need, then we set it all up for you so that you have a secure, powerful and reliable MySQL database that best serves your needs.
Under the hood, ClearDB uses a combination of advanced replication techniques, advanced cluster technology, and layered web services to provide you with a MySQL database that is “smarter” than usual. We also use things like mixed binary replication logging and auto-increment offset seeding so that you can continue using MySQL’s nondeterministic and time-based functions such as UUID(), NOW() as well as auto-increment keys in your tables.

Wire & Disk Security
Communication between clients and database nodes may be encrypted using 256-bit SSL encryption, signed by both server and client certificates. We also encrypt all of our database backups to keep your data safe while it’s out of the database.
Replicas Everywhere
All replicas that feed from our master0master configurations operate with the same binary logging format and enable your database to scale indefinitely with the number of replicas that you need. You can have multiple replicas in any AWS availability zone or AZURE region to ensure data availability.
ClearDB is Right Next Door
ClearDB master and replica nodes are configured to be right next to your applications, eliminating latency issues. This enables you to take advantage of local “private” networks within the cloud that are much faster and far less expensive than running your database through the Internet.
