How do I create a custom database?

FeatureBase databases can be created:

  • in a specific region, and
  • with a pre-packaged combination of memory, disk and virtual CPU resources, charged by the hour.

You can also create a database using Cloud API

Table of contents

Before you begin

Naming standards

FeatureBase identifiers (including object names such as databases, tables and columns) start with a lower-case alphabetic character and can include:

  • lower-case alphabetic characters
  • numbers 0-9
  • dash - and underscore _ characters.

FeatureBase Cloud database names can be up to 300 characters in length

Provisioning memory, RAM and virtual CPU for production systems

Choose bundled resources for your production system between the following values:

Resource Minimum Maximum
Memory 32GB 2TB
Disk storage 100GB 2TB
Virtual CPU 12 576

What data storage vendors are available?

FeatureBase runs on the following vendor architecture:

Feature AWS S3 Microsoft Azure
Architecture ARM AMD
Externalized storage Supported Not supported
Backups S3 buckets BLOB Storage that keeps the data within the cloud provider
FeatureBase Nodes (per shape) 3 3
Shape replica factor   2
Region US-east-2 (Ohio) eastus2

Azure uses internal SSDs (ephemeral storage) for your data. If FeatureBase nodes go down at once, data can be recovered from the latest backup.
