How Relational Databases from The Bunker work

We will keep your dataset protected with a hardened configuration using access control lists on a least privilege basis and a dedicated network (vlan) with firewalled access. Our network segregation policy only allows your applications and trusted user base access.

The cluster will be designed by our team to satisfy any High Availability and Disaster Recovery requirements that you may have, including considerations for external network access and security, should the MySQL service need access from external zones.

The initial setup will include running benchmarking tools to recommend configuration for optimal performance, which can be later modified to suit the changing needs as your business develops in the future.

Once on-boarding has taken place, you can take advantage of The Bunker’s managed services to ensure service availability and enable monitoring, backup and scheduled patch management.
