Support MySQL / MariaDB
Just as your managed Postgres service, it would be great to have one for MySQL / MariaDB.
Lack of MySQL is a bit of a dealbreaker :( I think this would go a long way in attracting and retaining customers.
Jason Sultana: Agreed. I'm new to serverless. Render seems like a really solid platform. However no php and mysql support are deal breakers for me, unfortunately. :(
Second adding it to help with hosting Ghost Newsletters/Blogs. Would be a great fit!
This would allow ghost users to use a managed mysql database.
There's a few features that come with the Postgres offering that would be great to have with MySQL that the private service version doesn't offer. Thinking of access control + connecting outside of Render and read replicas.
Daniel Marklund we've just released docs for hosting MySQL on Render: https://render.com/docs/deploy-mysql. Does this work for your needs?
Is this good idea to run MySQL in Container for Production environment?
kat: As long as you're using Render Disks to store data, it works great. Most issues related to containers and databases stem from using the container filesystem to store data.
Anurag Goel: What about managing the updates and machine optimizations that are specific to mysql?
Agam More: yeah, this feature request is specifically for a more 'managed' service that takes care of optimizations, backups, recovery, HA, and more.
Anurag Goel: so the deploy-mysql doc isn't relevant for a managed requirement, right? this issue is still relevant?
Agam More: correct.
