There’s a gap between what today’s cloud applications demand and what most databases deliver. As a developer, you have to ship code fast, make sure your applications stay online all the time, and support ever-changing scale requirements. The complex configurations of legacy databases like MySQL can limit your speed and agility.

If you’re tasked with managing infrastructure, you have to watch costs and dedicate time to database operations. Often you must over-provision and pay for extra capacity to prepare for spikes in traffic and future growth.

But what if there was a solution to get the most scale and performance out of MySQL, all in a fully-managed service? Introducing TiDB Serverless, a database-as-a-service (DBaaS) that delivers the open-source power of TiDB to everyone with zero operational overhead and true, pay-as-you-go pricing.

In this webinar, Xin Shi, Cloud Product Manager at PingCAP, walks through what this new service is, why it’s so powerful, and how you can get started (for free!) You’ll also discover:

  • TiDB Serverless’ unique feature set designed to maximize productivity while keeping infrastructure costs low
  • Relevant TiDB Serverless use cases and patterns
  • A live demo from PingCAP CTO Ed Huang showcasing how to build a data application from scratch in less than 10 minutes

By the end of this webinar, you’ll be ready to take your first steps with a fully-managed service built for auto-scaling, zero downtime, and enhanced security.
