Configuration and maintenance complexity


It's not easy to set up, configure, and maintain your database infrastructure – or to keep your OS and database system up to date and optimized.


Capella drastically reduces the effort of provisioning, configuration, and maintenance. It automates tasks for IaaS, OS, and common database work like backups. Teams can also use IaC tools like Terraform to further automate Capella.

Scaling and high availability


Building out a large global-ready database has been a tough undertaking for decades. Ensuring high availability is even more difficult.


Capella ensures the high availability of data across nodes, across groups of nodes within the database, and even across databases in separate regions. Data is auto-sharded across nodes and new nodes can be added with a few clicks. If a node fails, Capella auto-recovers and rebalances data.
