Akamai Linode Managed Database simplifies database deployment by assisting developers in reducing risk, improving efficiency, and reducing the complexity associated with manually managing production database clusters. Akamai Technologies introduced its database service powered by Linode that supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis, and MongoDB.

Will Charnock, Senior Director of Engineering at Akamai stated, “Every web application needs a database. Being able to automate aspects of database management is critical for applications that need to be scalable, highly performant, and resilient. Linode Managed Database continues the important work, which began with Linode Kubernetes Engine – our managed Kubernetes service – of supporting developers, businesses, and partners by managing the day-to-day tasks of mission-critical components of their applications, allowing them to focus more on innovation and less on daily infrastructure management. With the click of a button, developers can have a fully managed database deployed and ready to be populated.”

Databases are the most crucial facet of any application but managing them manually is a time-consuming and resource-intensive process.  Akamai Linode Managed Database service can allocate common deployment and maintenance tasks to Linode and select highly available configurations to ensure that database performance and uptime are never compromised. As a result, deploying applications requires less hands-on management expertise and has a lower risk of downtime when compared to manual management.

Linode customers have frequently sought the need for managed databases. Following the acquisition of Linode in March of this year, Akamai’s first product launch in its compute line of business is the Linode Managed Database service, reinforcing its mission to develop the world’s most powerful and distributed compute platform from the cloud to the edge.

Akamai will initially offer Linode Managed Database for MySQL in all of Linode’s 11 global data centers, with PostgreSQL, Redis, and MongoDB support coming in the second quarter of 2022. Customers can take advantage of features such as flat-rate costing, security and recovery measures, flexible deployment options, and high availability cluster options with each supported managed database.
