Keeping you safe & secure

Keeping our customers’ data and businesses safe and secure is our top priority. CrystalDB’s cloud native architecture delivers a range of security advantages.

Isolated virtual machines

Every CrystalDB database runs in a dedicated and isolated virtual machine, ensuring separation between customer workloads, even in a multi-tenant environment.

Encrypted data

All stored data is encrypted with a unique key prior to leaving a virtual machine, which is stored securely in our key management system (KMS).

Active monitoring

AutoDBA monitors database activity continually, alerting you to anomalous behaviors and intervening to stop high-risk patterns.

We are currently working towards SOC2 certification, which we aim to complete in the coming months.

CrystalDB is a self-managing serverless PostgreSQL for OLTP (Online Transaction Processing) applications. It provides infrastructure that automatically takes care of itself, allowing developers to focus on building software.

CrystalDB guarantees compatibility by building a management foundation below open-source PostgreSQL. It provisions compute, memory, and storage, and runs administrative tasks like vacuuming and generating statistics.

CrystalDB eliminates multi-tenancy hassles and offers secure deployments for customers of all sizes. It simplifies support for multi-tenancy, data sovereignty, and compliance, making it ideal for SaaS developers.

The AutoDBA feature in CrystalDB handles basic system configuration, allowing human DBAs to focus on optimization. It manages configuration pitfalls, missing indexes, or bad query plans, reducing the need for in-depth database management knowledge.

CrystalDB is designed with cloud-native architecture in mind, focusing on overcoming the limitations of distributed databases while maintaining scalability.

The core of CrystalDB is the open source PostgreSQL project. Our managed service is not presently open source, however we have plans to release select components that will be of value to the broader ecosystem. These will be released under the Apache 2.0 license.

CrystalDB uses a serverless foundation that allows compute and storage to scale every second. This ensures that resources are always available as needed and reduces costs by not charging for idle capacity.

CrystalDB aims to accelerate software development by providing predictable and simple infrastructure, automating mundane tasks, and focusing on the needs of SaaS developers.
