Bring Your Own Cloud Hosting FAQ


Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) vs. Dedicated Hosting at ScaleGrid

What is Bring Your Own Cloud and how is it different?

Bring Your Own Cloud is a unique hosting solution at ScaleGrid that allows you to host your MongoDB, Redis™, MySQL, and PostgreSQL clusters in your own cloud account. ScaleGrid is the only DBaaS that provides this beneficial hosting plan which allows you to significantly reduce long-term hosting costs up to 75% through Reserved Instances and leverage advanced security features like Virtual Private Clouds (VPC & VNET) and Security Groups. In comparison, our Dedicated Hosting plans are hosted by ScaleGrid through either AWS, Azure, GCP, Linode or DigitalOcean and use On-Demand instances through one all-inclusive plan.

How does Bring Your Own Cloud pricing work?

BYOC pricing starts at $10/month for MongoDB, $10/month for Redis™, $10/month for MySQL, and $10/month for PostgreSQL. Since these plans are hosted through your own cloud account, BYOC pricing in only for the management portion of your database hosting. Your actual hosting costs will be billed to you by your elected cloud provider. BYOC accounts scale dynamically on-demand so you never pay for more than you actually need.


Are there any additional fees?

All of your management, maintenance, and monitoring costs are included in the BYOC plan, including database upgrades, log rotations, and OS patching. Any additional fees you would incur through your cloud provider, like backup, data transfer, network, disk, and machine costs will be billed to you at the standard or discount rates as determined through and by your cloud provider.

How are my clusters hosted?

BYOC hosting is available on AWS, Azure, GCP, and OCI. All BYOC plans are hosted through your actual cloud account where you can take advantage of Reserved Instances to pay for your database hosting instances to save up to 75% on long-term hosting costs.

Are there any limitations to this plan?

BYOC plans are our more robust plan available, as they allow you the access our advanced database management, monitoring, and maintenance tools with the flexibility of hosting in your own cloud account. The only limitation to the BYOC plans is that they are not all-inclusive and managed through a single console, so you will be billed and will administer your cloud hosting through your cloud provider account. Compare all features for MongoDB, features for Redis™, and features for MySQL by plan type to see which hosting option is right for you.
