This partnership enables OVHcloud to offer an extensive catalog of DBaaS solutions such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis, Apache Kafka, ElasticSearch, M3, and Apache Cassandra. This wide range of database management systems suits a variety of uses, from legacy applications to AI applications, web applications, and e-commerce websites.
