Scalingo for MySQL® Overview


MySQL® is a free and open-source relational database management system. It is known for its reliability, ease of use, and performance, making it one of the most popular database systems in the world. It is well-suited for a wide range of applications, from small-scale websites to large-scale entreprise solutions.

Scalingo for MySQL®

Scalingo for MySQL® is our official MySQL® addon. We have several plans available, which you can chose of depending on your needs and budget. As always, a free plan is available for you to test our offer.


All our plans are fully managed. They allow to scale your database to another plan whenever you want.

They also include access to metrics and logs, allowing for quick and easy monitoring and auditing. For more information regarding this topic, please see our dedicated page.

From the security point of view, they all come with a TLS connection and encryption at rest.

In addition to the above, Starter and Business plans include daily automatic backups. All backups are encrypted and stored externally. For more information regarding this topic, please see our dedicated page.

For the most demanding environments, our Business plans include a fully-managed InnoDB cluster made of 3 MySQL® nodes in a private network and 2 MySQL® Routers (one leader and one failover) as entrypoint to your cluster private network. The communications in the cluster are encrypted. Chosing such a plan drastically lowers the risk of unavailability, be it during a maintenance operation (database upgrade, for example) or because of a platform issue.

Available Version

The latest version of MySQL® available is 8.0.35-1.

This is also the default version when attaching a MySQL® addon to your application.


Billing of your MySQL® addon is done on a minute basis.

If your database disk usage exceeds the threshold set on your plan, the over-quota is billed per GB-hour (see our FAQ further details).

The prices are detailed on our dedicated page.
