Build Your Database, Your Way

With full root access, you're in the driver's seat. Build your ideal server from the ground up and easily install the apps of your choice, including some of the most popular database solutions.

Relational Databases

A flexible open-source fork of MySQL. Ideal for those seeking advanced security without licensing complexities, but demands MySQL proficiency for optimal use.


Excels in enterprise settings with robust performance and seamless Microsoft integration. Relatively high costs pay off with the ability to handle resource-heavy applications.


Offers advanced features for complex data operations, suited for sophisticated data processing. It's resource-intensive, making it a consideration for larger projects.

Non-Relational Databases

Known for its flexible schema and scalability, and great for distributed data. However, it lags in transactional capabilities compared to relational databases.


This in-memory data store delivers fast operations and supports various data structures, though its memory intensity requires careful system design.


An alternative to Elasticsearch, powerful for analyzing large data volumes in real-time. A relatively high level of complexity may challenge some teams.

Additional Options

Want more than just a database? Customize your server with additional technologies, including NodeJS, Python, LAMP, LEMP, Object Storage, or anything you can think of. With Contabo, you get the power and affordability to create the server that suits your business.
