Switching DBaaS Providers FAQ

Get answers to the frequently asked questions for the Switching DBaaS Providers deal:

Why should I use ScaleGrid over my current DBaaS provider?

Here are a list of the top reasons why our customers switch from a competitor, and you can learn more on our Compare MongoDB, Compare Redis™, Compare MySQL, and Compare PostgreSQL pages.

  • Ability to host in your own cloud account
  • Multi-cloud support with no vendor lock-in
  • Superuser database access and SSH access
  • Free 24/7 support
  • Multi-database support
  • Customizable RAM, disk size, IOPS, instance type and replica setup
  • Leverage Reserved Instances in BYOC
  • Virtual Private Cloud support (AWS VPC, GCP VPC, OCI VCN and Azure VNET) in BYOC
  • Install custom plugins and extensions

Can I leverage special pricing I have with AWS, Azure, Oracle Cloud or GCP?

Yes, you can leverage any special pricing or hosting credits you have with AWS, Azure or GCP through our BYOC plans. This plan allows you to host through your own cloud account, so all of your machine, disk, and network costs are paid directly through your cloud provider. Simply create a Cloud Profile to grant ScaleGrid permissions to manage your account, and then our DBaaS platform will allow you to create new database instances and automate your management in your own cloud.

Can I get a discount on more than one database type?

Absolutely! The only caveat is that all the clusters in your account have to be setup under an eligible Switching Providers plan. The only time this wouldn't work is if you wanted to setup MongoDB under our Shared plan, as that is not supported under this deal.

Should I use the Dedicated or BYOC plan?

If you'd like to use AWS or Azure Reserved Instances, or GCP Commited Use Discounts, our BYOC plan would be the best fit for you as all of your cloud costs are paid directly through your cloud provider. The BYOC plan also allows you to leverage Virtual Private Clouds (AWS VPC, GCP VPC, OCI VCN and Azure VNET) to protect your databases from the internet, and Security Groups to lock down access to your clusters.

If these features are not required, our all-inclusive Dedicated plan is a great choice for you as it is extremely easy to setup, and includes both your hosting and DBaaS costs.

How much will ScaleGrid cost?

You can get a 50% discount on both our Dedicated Hosting and BYOC plans through the Switching Providers deal. Our plans are priced based on your data size and replica setup, and you can estimate your costs on our Pricing page by finding the best fit for your cluster needs.

How do I get started with the Switching Providers deal?

Getting started in incredibly easy. All you have to do is apply on our Switching DBaaS Providers page, and we'll be in touch soon with next steps for activating your deal.
