Datasources Overview

What do we mean by data sources?

Every application needs some kind of database or cache to store data. There are multiple ways to use databases:

  1. Get a hosted database/cache from a cloud provider
  2. Take an opensource image and host it yourself

It takes a lot of effort for dev teams to setup and maintain opensource databases. That is why we created a datasources feature on the Humalect platform. Choose a database or cache of your choice and we host it for you via helm charts in a few clicks.

Ephermal databases on demand made easy.

Can these datasources be used in production?

These datasources are meant to be used in an ephermal way and are best suited for non-production workloads.

Is my data fault tolerant?

All the data is safe as we use PVs and PVCs to store your data. All the data is stored in fault tolerant block storage with your cloud provider.
