Compose lands on Google's Cloud


Compose aspires to host every database it can and to run them on every cloud platform it can and that's why we're pleased to announce that Compose has landed on Google Cloud Platform. Actually, we've been up and running on GCP for a couple of months and the sharp of eye amongst you may have noticed that in the last month or so, we turned on the Google Cloud options in the console.

We're actually announcing two things today, the general availability of Compose hosted databases running on GCP and the beta availability of Compose Enterprise on GCP. That means you can have production ready deployment of MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Redis, Elasticsearch or RethinkDB – or the betas of RabbitMQ and etcd – with just a simple click. All you need to do is select Compose Hosted and then pick one of the two Google data centers at US East 1 in South Carolina or EU West 1 in Belgium.

Select Google

And that's all you need to do to join the 100 Compose users already enjoying having their databases hosted on Google Cloud Platform.

Compose Enterprise on Google Cloud Platform

Compose Enterprise on GCP has a more intricate configuration process, as it coordinates the deployment of the cloud infrastructure to host your Compose databases. It brings the same benefits of having control of the cloud infrastructure your Compose databases are hosted on as the AWS version. We'll go into all of that in an article soon.

In the meantime, we'll leave it to one of the first users of Compose on GCP, Albert Martin at TreeHouse, to have the last word...

"Our experience of Compose with their rock-solid database hosting, disaster recovery, and phenomenal support has allowed our development team to focus on what they do best: building apps equipping homeowners to create sustainable, beautiful, and healthy homes. Compose's introduction of Google Cloud allowed us to make use of Google's sustainable data centers aligning with our own efforts bringing sustainability to homes."

Try Compose free for 30-days on GCP, AWS or SoftLayer. Or heck, go crazy and try it in all three!
