ScaleGrid Overview

What is ScaleGrid?

ScaleGrid is a database-as-a-service (DaaS) hosting platform for MongoDB and Redis which allows businesses to deploy, monitor, scale, and backup their MongoDB and Redis clusters within the cloud on AWK, Azure, DigitalOcean, VMware, and OpenStack. ScaleGrid is designed for developers to assist their day-to-day workload by automating database operations and optimizing deployments.

With ScaleGrid, businesses and dev teams can manage and monitor their MongoDB and Redis clusters, and save time by automating database monitoring, management, and maintenance tasks. ScaleGrid functions on a database-as-a-service model meaning that users can run applications without worrying about downtime, and scale their database to any size as and when it is required. Automatic backups can be carried out within ScaleGrid for MongoDB and Redis clusters for both dedicated and shared hosting plans, and backup schedules can be created to define intervals at which data should be replicated.

ScaleGrid offers MongoDB hosting, management, backup, and deployment on AWS, Azure, and DigitalOcean platforms, with the tools to backup and scale MongoDB JSON documents. Users maintain full MongoDB admin access when using ScaleGrid, meaning multiple clusters can be managed from the root in one management console. ScaleGrid facilitates the customization of replica set configurations in order to ensure redundancy failover protection when deploying database productions.

Redis database hosting is also facilitated within ScaleGrid with tools including persistence customization, point-in-time backups, full Redis admin access, data encryption, Redis system monitoring and metric-based alerts, cross-region Redis replicas, and more. Redis servers can be deployed in an AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) subnet, and can support Amazon VPC when hosted using the "Bring Your Own Cloud" plan.

ScaleGrid for Startups

As the CTO of an Ad Tech startup which is currently disrupting the broadcast and broadband marketing industry, I truly appreciate how ScaleGrid is helping us rapidly grow and scale our cutting edge platform (advocado.media). ScaleGrid streamlines the MongoDB dev ops and allows us to focus on building out the business critical features that are driving the growth of our platform.

Being able to have dedicated setups is great for us. We are a technology company, focused on software, with minimal skills, time and resources around networking and hardware setups. We also really enjoy the no hidden costs approach, with no "unknown" fees. this helps dramatically when budgeting.

As the CTO of an Ad Tech startup which is currently disrupting the broadcast and broadband marketing industry, I truly appreciate how ScaleGrid is helping us rapidly grow and scale our cutting edge platform (advocado.media). ScaleGrid streamlines the MongoDB dev ops and allows us to focus on building out the business critical features that are driving the growth of our platform.

Pros

The ease of use was fantastic! The dev ops that goes into setting up scalable and redundant MongoDB clusters in Microsoft Azure is fairly daunting, but ScaleGrid automates 95% of that! They also make it very easy to switch from Azure to AWS, an initiative of ours which is currently underway. We are also currently implementing a sharding solution for improved horizontal scalability and ScaleGrid has made that process much easier to manage as well.

Cons

There is not much to not like about ScaleGrid. My biggest complaint is the lack of multi user account with groups and access controls, this forces us to use a single login to manage our ScaleGrid instances, which is not ideal. I think the monitoring metrics are in a pretty good place now but could be improved to be more on par with what you get from a more mature platform like AWS RDS for example.

Exceptional product and exceptional customer service.

Pros

Although I could have spun up yet another database in Azure or AWS, I found during the proof of concept stage that even though it is an Azure or AWS solution that ScaleGrid is managing, the throughput and reliability is much higher.
In fact, it is because ScaleGrid effectively manage the instance for us that I decided to let them take the hassle.

Cons

It is slightly more expensive than going direct but the value add of being fully managed and pre-configured was worth the additional spend.

Pros

The dashboard is great for tracking, and although the functionality around accessing the db via the console is limited, it does the job we need it to. Alerts definitely help. Customer service is my best part, the team is great, always responds to our messages and queries and sometimes are already investigating issues they picked up before us. great job!

Cons

Console often gets stuck loading, i need to reboot and then everything is fine. when building a DB, it would be fantastic to be able to choose an IOPS level with the package. The team has been very helpful with us, helping us upscale our drives to allow for more IOPS when we do not need any more storage space.

Pros

We previously used mlab for our hosted MongoDB needs, but they shut down. Out of all competitors ScaleGrid stood out to us because of their fair pricing and simple setup.

Cons

We would have liked to have our test/staging environment on a different cluster. This would double our costs though. Mlab offered free environments for testing. They had very small data allowance, but it was perfect for us. We now had to opt into having our test database live on the same cluster. It's okay, but that could be improved. Accessing backups is also cumbersome. Often I just need to look up something that for instance got deleted by accident. These are small issues and definitely not a deal breaker.

Pros

It was easy to deploy, doesn't force me to upgrade other dependent environments.

Cons

It's more than double the price for small start-ups then what mLab offered. There was a comparable shared cluster subscription, but it seems like they stopped offering it as soon as mLab users were forced to move elsewhere due to an acquisition from MangoDB (Atlas).
