Scalability, Performance, Accessibility
Relational database systems are an integral and indispensable component in most computing environments today, and their importance is unlikely to diminish. However, setting up and managing databases on-premise is a complex and tedious activity, due to changing compute and software licensing needs, along with uptime and performance challenges.
Netmagic DBaaS helps enterprises minimize the complexity of setting up and managing databases. The service includes a packaged offering with compute and MS-SQL database. DBaaS provisions dedicated virtual machine instances with MS- SQL database with your choice of Standard or Enterprise editions. It offers complete functionality of MS-SQL software along with the option to administer the database, set replication, backup and clusters.
Netmagic DBaaS offers multiple service plans based on the quantum of virtual instances, compute capacity and bundled MS-SQL licenses (including editions). With a flexible pay-as-you-grow pricing model, you can set up and manage your database quickly and cost effectively.
Microsoft SQL DBaaS VM’s
Type of VM
Netmagic Public Cloud SQL DBaaS VMs are available as ‘Fixed’ or Monthly plans only. No ‘Elastic’ or Hourly plans are available.
Charges for Microsoft SQL DBaaS VMs are different from Standard VMs. The cost of the SQL DBaaS VM depends on the configuration of VM chosen. License costs increase proportionately with VM cores.
Customers can choose to contract management / administration of SQL separately via Netmagic’s ‘InfraManage’ range of services
Customers can choose to upgrade their SQL DBaaS VMs. If an upgrade involves additions of cores, then SQL licenses are correspondingly upgraded as well.
SQL licenses are Core Licenses and can only be upgraded in volumes of two cores (as per Microsoft licensing). Accordingly, core upgrades on DBaaS VMs are also in increments of two cores.
Customers can choose from multiple DBaaS configurations and provision VMs with either SQL Standard edition or SQL Enterprise Edition of SQL 2012, SQL 2014 and SQL 2016.
Netmagic offers an extensive range of architecture, deployment and management services for public, private, hosted or virtual private cloud for different applications, as required.
