Database Hosting service overview
Claranet provide an instance of an operating system that is running database server software such as Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL. Claranet manage the infrastructure up to the database server configuration level. You can access the database instance using database tools to perform queries. To protect your database availability you cannot access the operating system or database server configuration to make changes. Any changes or additions to database structure are submitted via change request. Additional database servers can be added to create a segregated database environment.
Claranet provide a virtualisation hypervisor on hardware dedicated to you. You use a self-service portal to provision and change virtual machines, and carry the responsibility for managing all operating systems, applications and databases.
Similar to the self-service hypervisor except that all provisioning is performed by Claranet.
Flexible management levels
