Manage Relational Databases
Learn how to connect and manage databases in Humanitec.
Humanitec supports a range of Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS) out of the box. In all of these systems there is a distinction between the database and the RDBMS server or instance.
The access method refers to how Humanitec connects to an RDBMS instance. Currently, 3 access methods are supported out of the box:
When connecting over SSH, Humanitec first connects to bastion host or jump server and then makes an onward connection from that server to the instance itself. This is a common way of administering private RDBMS instances, for example a private Amazon RDS instance running inside a private VPC.
Google provides their own proxy which can be used to securely connect to private Cloud SQL instances without the need of a dedicated bastion host.
The supported databases along with their access methods are summarised here:
