Create a bastion host and use the bastion host to access the database host. For more information, see Create a bastion host, Log on to a host by using a bastion host in Linux, and Access a Windows host from a bastion host.

Background information

ApsaraDB MyBase allows you to obtain more autonomous and controllable permissions by enabling operating system (OS) permissions. This helps database administrators (DBAs) to make full use of their skills, and also helps to solve database problems in a timely manner.

Database hosts and bastion hosts are used together in the following typical application scenarios:

  • Financial and insurance enterprises must establish reliable audit mechanisms to meet the strict security regulatory requirements of the industry.
  • Internet enterprises require efficient and stable audit systems because the number of employees and servers in Internet enterprises is rapidly increasing.
