When the PlanetScale beta was released in May of 2021, we initially set out to launch on a shared tenancy model where databases from different organizations run in separate processes while sharing compute resources.
Shortly after our beta launch, we saw high demand from organizations with regulatory requirements and compliance constraints that prohibited them from running in a shared tenancy model. It was clear that we needed to offer a single-tenancy model as well.
For these customers who require a single-tenancy option, we now offer an alternative that allows you to use PlanetScale’s database workflow and management functionality from inside your own cloud network and accounts: PlanetScale Managed.
In this configuration, you're able to use the same API, CLI, and web interface that PlanetScale offers, with the benefit of it running on your own AWS or GCP account. We have packaged the best parts of PlanetScale into a to-go container and delivered them to your own account; bringing you the best of SaaS with the added benefit of a deployment free of noisy neighbors.
PlanetScale Managed is available for deployment on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
PlanetScale Managed is a packaged data plane, built on Vitess and Kubernetes, that’s deployed to an AWS or GCP sub-account that you own and we operate. Additionally, it is available in any AWS region with at least 3 Availability Zones, even ones we don’t offer in the hosted product!
We offer private database connectivity via AWS PrivateLink for AWS accounts or Private Service Connect for GCP accounts.
You and your team will interact with your databases through
app.planetscale.com, as you normally would with our hosted product, without requiring any changes to
pscale tooling or Continuous Integration workflows.
Single-tenancy isn't the only benefit when it comes to PlanetScale Managed. With this premium, white-glove service, you also get:
- A truly fully managed database solution
- Database sharding available
- Option to sign BAAs for HIPAA compliance
- Deployment to additional regions
- PCI compliance (AWS only)
- Additional Support options
- Available on AWS Marketplace (AWS only). Your PlanetScale purchase through the AWS Marketplace and the resources you use on PlanetScale will qualify against your EDP commitment.
