This topic describes ApsaraDB MyBase (ApsaraDB MyBase).

Product introduction

ApsaraDB MyBase or ApsaraDB MyBase for short is a database solution. ApsaraDB MyBase is developed by Alibaba Cloud to provide customized and optimized database services for enterprise users. An ApsaraDB MyBase dedicated cluster consists of multiple underlying hosts. These hosts can be Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances of the i2 instance family or ECS Bare Metal instances. An ApsaraDB MyBase dedicated cluster provides more database services than fully managed database solutions.

ApsaraDB MyBase supports MySQL, SQL Server, and PostgreSQL. ApsaraDB MyBase allows you to use dedicated cloud resources and supports resource overcommit. ApsaraDB MyBase also supports customized O&M and allows you to grant OS permissions and users permissions on specified databases in a dedicated cluster. Therefore, ApsaraDB MyBase provides flexible and easy-to-use database services and also meets the requirements of your enterprise for database regulatory compliance and database security.

Features

ApsaraDB MyBase allows you to manage multiple instances in a dedicated cluster. You can create multiple dedicated clusters in a region. Each dedicated cluster can contain multiple hosts and each host can deploy multiple instances.

ApsaraDB MyBase provides the following features for dedicated clusters:

  • Resource scheduling: You can configure an overcommit ratio for each type of resource to maximize the resource usage. Resources are divided into multiple types, such as CPU, memory, storage capacity, IOPS, and network traffic.
  • Host management: A host serves as a carrier for ApsaraDB MyBase resources. You can manage hosts. For example, you can add, replace, and connect to hosts. You can also specify whether instances can be allocated to a host.
  • Instance management: You can manage the primary instance, secondary instances, read-only instances, and instances that are used to store log entries.
