Oracle MySQL Cloud Service provides tools that you can use with your cloud-based MySQL application, including:

  • Create a pre-configured MySQL database which is already optimized for performance and automated for lifecycle management.
  • Create routine online backups of your working databases, supported by MySQL Enterprise Backup.
  • MySQL Query Analyzer and MySQL Enterprise Monitor can monitor the databases continuously and highlight potential problems, before they become actual bottlenecks in production. These could also provide recommendations to rectify the identified issues.
